Robertson, a 15-year-old New Orleans Saints superfan who has gained international attention for his energetic love of the team, suffers from biliary atresia, a condition that required a liver transplant when Robertson was two-years-old and another one on April 29.
The latest surgery, which was scheduled to take eight to 10 hours, look six and a half, and Robertson has been recovering steadily every day, according to his Twitter feed.
