1:15 P.M. Update:

Per Everett’s mom:

Surgery is going good, Everett is stable and holding strong. They are preparing to put in the new kidney. Slow and steady wins the race!!! Will update when he is out of the OR and on the way to recovery. It will still be several hours so it’s time to pray the new kidney pinks up and starts working.

Today is Everet’s kidney transplant. Angie, Everett’s mom will be giving us updates throughout the day. We will post as soon as we receive.

They took Everett back around 8:30 a.m. and his mom Angie is waiting on confirmation they were able to get him to sleep ok. Angie said, “Surgeon said it would be late this afternoon before he comes out but he said they will call me every hour with and update. They said he will probably be on the ventilator for a few days before they try to wean him off.”

Please keep Everett and his family and the doctors in your thoughts and prayers as they do his surgery.
