Feeding update

If all goes as currently planned, Timmy will be admitted to the hospital next week (probably all week) for GI tests and surgery(s?) to put in the permanent feeding tube. First they will test for reflux. If he does have reflux, they will have to do surgery to fix it before putting in the feeding tube. Otherwise it should just be the one surgery.

Dear Lara and Marshall,
When Dalton had his surgery for reflux and the permanent tube insertion, I believe it was all done at the same time. I didn't arrive (in Virginia) until one or two days after surgery so I am not sure. I will have to check with Julie to find out. Yesterday we were talking about Timmy's tube and Dalton gave a big smile and a thumbs-up! What a wonderful picture of Timmy with his NG tube . He looked so content with all his needs for love and food being met. Blessings to all. Love Ramona
