Surgery update 9/29/11

Carter had another tough night last night. Around midnight he pulled his ng tube out. His nurse and I fought him to get another one inserted only for him to pull it out again. He was restless and miserable all night. His stomach grew larger by this morning and he was extremely pale. When our surgeon came around, he took one look at Carter and said he needed to go to surgery today. I called Brandon at work and he hurried to the hospital. Carter went to surgery and as of right now I feel it was a success. Carter had a stricture towards the end of his intestines. Carter's tummy has already gone down and he looks so much better! He was finally able to rest this afternoon. We are so thankful to God for placing the need for another surgery in our surgeons heart. We have an AWESOME surgeon! We are waiting for Carter to have output and then we will start clear liquids. Once he is tolerating his feedings we will be able to go home. Let's pray for output! The poor baby has not been able to eat since Sunday at lunch. Thank you all so much for your relentless prayer!
