God heard your prayers and Isaiah did extremely well through the procedures/surgeries. This is the first time he recovered from general anesthesia without any episodes. Also, for the first time, we were able to come home on the same day!!! Yep, we can't believe it ourselves! All three procedures went well.

The ear tubes went in without complication and Isaiah had much less pain this time than the first time. Dr. Germiller was very happy with the results. Dr. Flick performed the upper endoscopy with biopsies. He said his esophagus/intestinal track looked healthy and normal. The only slight abnormality he saw was a puckered pyloris, but he doesn't know what that means yet. The next step is to wait a week before the final results from the biopsies come in.

Interventional Radiology, Dr. Keller, placed the GJ tube. He had trouble threading the tube because of Isaiah's abnormal intestinal structures. He is hoping Isaiah will tolerate this new tube. There is a chance this new tube is the wrong size---Isaiah fell in between the 2 sizes they use. Just our luck, huh!?!? Pray that with this new tube there will be no shifting, migration of the tube back into the stomach, leaking, vomiting, diarrhea, infection, or increased pain.

Thank you again for all your prayers, support, emails, notes, and meals. You encourage us more than you will ever know. You are all a part of our extended family. It's great to be loved this much.
