I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Another surgery....

Today was another busy day for Carter.  Around 7 this morning Carter started vomiting again.  Carter had not really had any output for the past two days.  His tube feedings were stopped and a decision was made to take him back to surgery.  Our surgeon dilated the opening in Carter's intestine that occurred due to complications with his last surgery.  Once dilated Carter immediately stared having output.  Carter woke up perfectly from his surgery.  He is feeling great and you would never know that he had surgery today.  Carter has continued to have a small amount of output since the surgery.  We will pray that this continues and this solves Carter's feeding intolerance issues.  We will restart his tube feedings in the morning and see how he does.  Currently he is receiving TPN and lipids.  We will watch Carter closely throughout the night and the next few hours to make sure he does not get a fever.  We are very concerned about this! The last time he had a procedure performed on his intestines he got septic.  Please continue to pray for Carter.  Pray that will remain infection free, his intestine will continue to heal, and he will tolerate his feedings.  Thank y'all for the love and support that you have continued to show Carter and our family. Your prayers, words of encouragement, and support are truly a blessing to each one of us.
