Surgery afterall

We have been on such a surgery rollercoaster with Brennan! Yesterday morning they thought surgery, by the afternoon thought it was resolving itself so no surgery, last night decided he needed surgery. He has scar tissue that formed a band around his bowel, causing the obstruction. It was supposed to be scheduled for this afternoon, but now he's too unstable for surgery. His electrolytes are all off balance and anesthesia felt it was too risky to put him under. We are so thankful for a wise medical team! He has lost quite a bit of weight and is still pretty dehydrated. The PICC line team came by and didn't find any good spots - he may have to go down to have one placed. So, now we're on schedule for surgery tomorrow at 12:30.


He's lost quite a bit of weight so we're really hoping to get him feeling better soon! Such a trooper!

I'm a fellow preemie mom (26 weeker) and I've been reading your blog. You are an amazing family and I'm praying for all of you and little Brennan during his surgery.
