I just got word from Maddie that they took out his heart pacing wires. These wires are used if Keegan's heart had ever developed an arrhythmia and they needed to try to correct it with a pace maker. These little wires were just stuck into his little heart and they removed them by simply pulling them out of his chest. (Sounds like fun huh?) You can see them in some of the pictures. They kept them in glass test tubes and they look a lot like little sticks of TNT with wires sticking out of them (when you see a chest x-ray they really look like TNT).

It sounds like they will be ready to pull his ventilator in about another half hour. I will let you know how that goes once I hear. Thanks!
