New Tube


Abby's GJ-tube replacement procedure went very smoothly!  They fit us in this afternoon, even if they were an hour behind schedule.  We were just thankful to get it done today.  Abby seemed uncomfortable last night with the slow drip into her stomach.

They didn't do IV sedation this time which surprised us... the last two procedures they did.  The doctor came to get her himself and carried her to the procedure room.  He was so sweet to Abby.  He said she probably wouldn't need deep sedation.  It took about 20 minutes.  They must have given her something through her tube to relax her or something b/c she came back a little groggy, and he mentioned that she slept through the most uncomfortable part.

She was SO hungry by 2 pm when they finally took her back, after not having anything all morning.  While we waited, Patrick distracted her by tickling.  That was the only thing that helped her stop moaning, even if for just a minute.

Baby Hunter will probably be having surgery soon.  Please continue to pray for him and his family.
