Surgery started at 9:20 am CST. We got to the hospital at 5:30 this morning and then spent several hours getting checked in. Eric is feeling very at peace and ready to get this tumor out. The surgery is expected to be about 12 hours. We are feeling pretty calm on this beautiful sunny Minnesota day. We get updates every two hours about how the surgery is going. We'll update the blog again tonight, when he is out of surgery. Thank you all for all of the love, support, and prayers. We feel very blessed.
