All that and a bucket of chicken

The surgery was finally completed after about 4 hours – the time they told us it would take – and the surgeon came out to tell us everything went pretty well. Yay.

And apparently we had enough frequent flier miles that they gave us a free surgical upgrade. Along with the fundoplication (still love that word) and G-tube, they went ahead and stitched up her umbilical hernia while they were there.  So now we won’t get to see her bellybutton blow up like a little balloon when she cries.  Oh well…you win some, you lose some.

But overall, things are good.  She’s going to be on some pain meds for awhile (she does have a bellybutton to chest incision, after all) and probably won’t eat for the next 48 hours or so.  Saturday will probably see her feeding restarted, and we’ll get to dialysis as necessary.  Probably looking at 4-5 days or so, but it could be worse, right?

    Glad to hear things went well. Thinking of you guys often and praying for a quick and easy recuperation for Eliana. Love to all of you!

      Thanks Susan. If all goes well we’re hoping to see everyone in March. Making sure we can pull off the logistics, but looks feasible.
