It's 6:30pm and we just got off the phone with Jan. They are just now starting the jaw. It's taking longer than what they were wanting. The face surgery took a little more than 3 hours. The eye took longer than they thought. There was more damage to the eye and nose than what they thought. They put plates and pins in his face and they may shift. If they do, it means more surgery in the future. In fixing the nose they had to pack it and because of the packing they put a trachea in which he will be breathing through for the next few days. Until they can unpack. He will be breathing through a ventilator.
Pray the jaw does not go as long as expected because the doctors did not want to go longer than 10 hours. They will because they started, but they really didn't want to.
