It took them quite a while to get Tristan's IV lines in -he needs a total of 5 : 2 arterial lines, 2 peripheral lines, and 1 central line- and at the last nurses update she said that the doctor should make the chest incision within the next 15 minutes, that was 45 minutes ago. Tristan at the time was doing very well.
He was a super good boy this morning and a continuous cuddler. It was so hard to let them take him from me when it was time for him to go back to surgery. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to let him go.......that was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, even harder than when I had to do it at his first surgery!  We should be getting another update within the next 30 minutes so I will update more then
