Colin Pre Surgery for Battery Packs

This is a photo of Colin pre surgery to implant the battery packs in his chest. We arrived at the hospital at 5:30 a.m. and surgery began around 8:00 a.m. He was so happy to get the bandage wrap off of his head as you can see by his huge smile in this photo. He will be having 2 battery packs placed just below the collar bone on each side of his chest. Dr. Starr also told us that he would be turning the system on so that he can begin the stimulation process. The surgery will take about 2 hours.

  1. Hi Colin & family, We’ve been following your journey through the blog and it seems like everything is progressing in a positive way! I hope and pray that once the stimulation begins that Colin will start to experience improvement in his symptoms and gradually begin to do all of the fun activities that he enjoys.We are so proud of you Colin! ~ Martha
