Efeturi's procedure took over 9 hours and, thank god, went well! Due to the bleeding, they won't completely close his chest until tomorrow (5/20), but he is doing well and they expect to remove his breathing tube on Thursday (5/22). He is currently back in the ICU recovering with family by his side. He now has a mechanical heart which will last him until they are able to perform his second heart transplant. Thank you all for the continuing support, it has been amazing so far! We all know how amazing and strong the Atiyota's are so let's continue to keep them in our prayers and support them by sharing Efe's story.
Thank you all! We love you Efe, stay strong!!
