I got a call yesterday from the pediatric surgeons office. It seems Aidan's doctors have been discussing the option of him having a device called a "Nissan" put in his tummy to prevent the reflux that he is having. This device is usually put in place at the same time as the g-tube surgery, but it wasn't in Aidan's case. They want to do the surgery this coming week, and we have an appointment to see both surgeons on Monday afternoon, after our appointment with Aidan's neurologist.
I think the surgery is a good idea because Aidan is having multiple vomiting episodes every day. It still has a lot of mucus in it. I don't know what is going to make the mucus go away, but he just has SO much of it.
Russell's mom and brother arrived yesterday evening. I'm glad that they got here safely. We've missed them both so much, and our nephew, Seth, as well. It's a toss up. Being closer physically to one family over the other one. We had planned to get back to OK sooner, but with the whole job situation leading up to Aidan's accident and then the accident itself, nothing ever seems to work out.
I'll be able to post more on Monday once I know more about the surgery and get a chance to talk with the neurologist about things. I don't really know where things stand at this point. Sorry I don't have better news.
Please pray with us that this surgery will help Aidan's reflux problem and that we're able to get the secretions to dry up so that he is more comfortable. Thank you, everyone!
