So amazingly enough they got us in quickly at Children's Hospital for surgery on December 23rd to close up Isaac's g-tube site that wasn't healing. The surgery went well and the very next morning we could feed the little man in his high chair. It was AMAZING. After leaking like a sieve for over 2 months the boy could finally keep some food in! He weighed 18 lbs and 7 ozs the day of the surgery. Hopefully we can get the little man to gain some weight so we can get back on track! He already seems to have so much more energy because he is keeping his food in. He really enjoyed Christmas & has been so fun these past few days. Such a silly little boy. Of course he did bite a girl at church, but she didn't seem to mind all that much. :)
Here's a shot of his tummy - its going to be a little U shaped scar & a lot smaller than we thought. Its hard to tell much, but you can at least get an idea of the size.

Well since we had the g-tube removed the last week of October (heck since our 9/25 visit to Children's) my little guy hasn't gained an ounce. Its been a pretty crappy time I have to say. He's had a cold & a virus and worst of all - the g-tube is not healing. He leaks out most of what food we put in. Poor little man. So now we have to get surgery to sew up the stomach and fix the site that's not healing. We are hoping we can get it as soon as possible. I'm 35 weeks pregnant at this point and it really would be great if we could get it in the next few weeks. I just feel so bad that he has been suffering with this for 8 weeks now. 8 weeks!!! I swear it was nice to hear the surgeons just say - lets fix it now - you don't have to wait until January like the surgeon down here said. (who sucks by the way) Keep my little guy in your thoughts that he'll heal like nobody's business & start feeling his old self again!!!
