G-Tube Update

Will's feeding tube surgery was this past Thursday.  The surgery went well.. Will was a trooper!  The surgery took about an hour. Will was sent to the PICU unit for extra care after surgery. There were only 2 other children in the unit, so Will got extra special care!  He stayed in the PICU overnight, on Friday afternoon he was transferred to the acute care unit and spent one more night in the hospital.  He is still very sore, but seems to be in good spirits.  We have a pediatric home health nurse that will help us out getting comfortable with his G-tube feedings.  Will's caloric intake will be about 1100 calories… we should see a big change in his weight and he may even grow a few inches!  Thank you all for your prayers!
