now ya don'tAfter we got done taking the g-tube out and putting the bandaid on Caleb seemed happy...
Sometimes, these holes, left by the g-tube will heal on their own, within a couple hours, other times, they don't. It has been a day now since we took it out and Caleb's is still leaking a lot, requiring many dressing and shirt changes. With how long Caleb has had his, and with how the stomach lining started to come out of the hole (sorry too much info) we are worried it may not heal on its own. If not, it will require to be stitched in surgery. Please pray this heals on its own and that he doesn't need surgery to close it up! Way to go Caleb on another HUGE hurdle!
Also, Caleb's hernia surgery is schedule for April 7th. The craniofacial team does not want to group the nose repair with this surgery as they feel it would be too much at once. So, as long as the surgery goes well and he extabates okay it should be a same-day surgery. We did ask if they would just go ahead and close the hole left from the g-tube while they are in there, and they said they would rather wait a couple weeks. I am a little upset with their response as if he is in there, why not do it while he is under rather than doing another surgery and exposing him to more General anesthesia. We are also planning a little vacation in a couple weeks, and it would be really nice if that g-tube site was closed up. So please pray for a smooth surgery and that the g-tube site heals quickly and on its own!
Also, we are meeting with new therapists tomorrow for Caleb's evaluation. This is the therapy I talked about a couple posts back that will be an out-patient clinic therapy that he will have to go to the site and do his therapy. They have tons of equipment that we hope will help Caleb with his delays!
Way to go Caleb for all your continued achievements!
Thanks all for checking in!
God Bless you all!!
God Bless Caleb!!
