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

We are home...

We had a great flight home on Monday, Carter slept the entire flight! We met with our surgeon Tuesday morning. Carter really needs to get off of the TPN and lipids (IV nutrition). So for right now the goal is to have him tolerating formula. One of the main reasons he needs to tolerate formula is not only adequate nutrition, but for healing factors. If Carter was to have surgery right now it is very likely he would not heal properly, which would lead to more complications. Today our surgeon is going to try to place another NJ tube. Carter vomited the one he had placed on Friday at Johns Hopkins. This will be the third and final try to get the NJ tube to stay in place. If it does not stay in place, Carter will have a GJ tube placed next week. The surgery to place the GJ tube is pretty intense so we are trying to make sure he can tolerate J feeds before we do it, this is why he is having the NJ tube replaced today. Hopefully, this NJ tube will stay in place and we will have more time to wrap our head around everything before his next surgery. Again, thank you all so much for all of your sweet messages, text and prayers! They mean so much to us!!!

I just LOVE finding pictures on my phone Carter has taken of himself, while listening to Veggie Tales!:)
