Successful Surgery.....

(Right before surgery)

We are happy to share that Noah is out of surgery and it was a success!! The surgeon was surprised to find a large blockage at the top of his small intestine, just below his stomach. She estimated that his opening had shrunk to the size of a pin (no wonder nothing was getting through)!  The intestines above the blockage were very distended so we are very grateful that they decided to move forward now. They took out the blocked section and were able to stitch the two sections together. It is probable that he will be eating again in 5-7 days, and then home!! 

We are hopeful that this surgery has resolved some mysterious pain issues that he has been struggling with. His tummy has always been a source of discomfort for him, and it could be that this blockage took a while to build up and was causing his discomfort. That would be a real praise!! 

We are so grateful for all of your prayers! How we love this boy, and can't wait to have him home again!! 

Look out 2012!!
