How we came to be....a family PART II

OK, so fast forward to 2006. We realized that Isaiah would need some very specialized medical care. He was referred to University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha. He had his first surgery there in September. He went in with a mangled gut and came out with...nothing. He had only one third of his colon remaining and all of his small intestines were gone now, except for a small piece that connected the stomach to the colon. He was on IV nutrition and had a bag with drainage from his stomach and liver.

He was listed for a small bowel transplant in November, 2006 and received his transplant in March, 2007. He was above the curve in every way after surgery. He even got up and walked a few feet the day after the transplant. Amazing kid!!!

We did get to move back home in August of 2007. It was so great to be back.
