Brock Rocks

New Surgery Date

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 10:36 pm

We’re trying to enjoy our time at home but Brock is finishing a steroid burst and so he’s been pretty miserable.  Other than the hours of screaming each day, things are good.  😉  Thankfully tonight was his last dose so hopefully he’ll return to his happy self soon.

The surgeon’s nurse called me today and we’ve rescheduled his surgery for August 31.  This is the one we were supposed to do on the 17th – place a new infusaport, remove his picc line, do a fundoplication, and switch out his g-j tube for a g tube.  It’ll be a big deal; especially the fundoplication because he won’t be able to do it laproscopically.  Brock’s had problems with weaning from pain medication in the past, so we’re praying that they’ll be able to adequately manage his pain but that he would also be able to wean off the pain meds as quickly as possible.  We’re praying, also, that the surgeon will even be able to DO the fundoplication.  He tried last February and it didn’t work.

Thank you for continuing to pray along with us!
