Carter update...

Our appointment at UAB was canceled again. Due to Carter's test results on Friday our surgeon wanted to see him today. Our surgeon decided he would try to manipulate Carter's bowels in an attempt to get them flowing correctly. The procedure is painful and I was given two options. Carter could be sedated and go to surgery on Thursday or we could attempt to do it in the clinic and if Carter did not tolerate it our Doctor would stop and we would schedule surgery for Thursday. It was a tough decision, but I decided to let our Doctor try it in the clinic. This way Carter did not have to go through being sedated, not being able to eat, an I.V. and everything else that goes along with surgery. Carter did really good. He is still a little sore and we will need to go back in 4 weeks and have the same thing done again, but we are extremly happy he did not have to go through another surgery. We went Tuesday for Carter's feeding evaluation and got some really good tips and different tools to help him eat. He did really good today. He ate an entire jar of baby food for lunch!! This is really good for Carter. He usually eats one or two bites on a good day. So we are really excited and are praying he will start gaining weight. We did reschedule our appointment at UAB. Carter has an appointment Thursday with our urologist and we will go to UAB next week for his MRI with sedation.
