Surgery went well, they removed the old tubes and all the gunk that was surrounding them. They drained all the fluid from behind his eardrums, and placed the new set of tubes. While they were in there they removed his adenoids so that maybe in the future, the fluid that keeps building up will be able to drain more easily.
Our pediatric surgeon stopped in when he was in pre-op to take a look at his g tube. He thought maybe he could do something while he was in surgery that day and get it over with but it didn't happen.
After talking with us and looking at him, he's decided that V needs to be scoped again and have a new tract placed through his abdominal wall. After he has a week or so to recover from this round of anesthesia we will have him admitted for a couple of days. His current button will be removed and the stoma will be allowed to close. Then he will take him to the O.R. and scope him to get a good internal look and replace the tube in a new tract.
Lord I hope this is worth it, my poor baby isn't eating right, his skin is absolutely wrecked around this current site, and he's so uncomfortable. I really hope this works.
Last but certainly not least.. I have to give a big happy birthday shout out to my oldest son William. The day of the surgery, June 24, my boy turned 16 years old. I am so very proud of him and proud to be his Mom. I'll have to get a picture on here soon, he is just so handsome.
