Isaiah is growing quite quickly into a little man, and has a bigger than life personality! He already knows how to work the crowd, especially the ladies!) He is very funny, likes to make us laugh, likes to torture his older brother. It's never a dull moment around here!

Quick update on his G-tube:
We were at CHOP Main 3 times this past week to have his site examined. There is a sore at the surgical site that is starting to tunnel down into where the tube enters the stomach. It is draining, and the doctor had it swabbed for any bacterial infection. It also has granulation tissue growing, which is similar to scar tissue that inhibits healing. Thankfully, the culture came back with a mild bacterial overgrowth that is NOT serious enough for oral antibiotics. We are able to treat the mild infection topically with an antibiotic ointment. Plus, the doctor was able to cauterize the granulation growth. So, now he is hopefully on the mend. We go back to see Dr. Collins on Sept. 1st for another evaluation. She'll determine at that time if she needs to change out the whole tube.

Thank you for continuing to pray, providing meals, sending words of encouragement, and helping out in other ways. We could not have made it through all of this without you!

  1. Praying for the healing of that tube site. Can't believe he's reached that 18-month landmark!
