As we remain in the family lounge outside the operating theatre in NYC Weill Cornell Medical Centre, Our son Liam has been undergoing brain surgery for the past 4 hours in his battle against Battens Disease.
Te Latest report from the OR is that Liam is doing fine, he is in good shape and has received the first dose of Gene therapy through the six holes, which were drilled in his skull this morning.
It will be approximately a further 4 hours before the surgery is complete and we are bursting to see our little man.
Leaving him this morning was the toughest thing we had to do since we buried Saoirse in January, we just hope he will come out of this ok today!
