And here comes the take down

So after much consulting with the Elementary, teachers, and doctors - we've decided to have Isaiah's take down tomorrow. This is where the portion of his intestine that has been on the oustide of his body (stoma) gets put back in. Smaller surgery, but no less risky. There are plenty of things that can go wrong, but we're praying everything goes well.

He is scheduled for 1230 surgery, 2 day recovery, and then we will be in-patient for two weeks. He will be hooked back up to a central line and getting TPN feeds while his gut recovers and then we'll be moved to out-patient while he starts on formula/solid foods.

We tried to keep him in school for as long as possible, but with another week spent here this time it just seems like an uphill struggle. The school and hospital teacher were all really supportive as we try to get our little guy through 2nd grade and ready for 3rd. I can't say "Thank You" enough to everyone as it takes so much coordination to get everything done.

So I give you all a hearty "Welcome Back to Omaha!" as we continue our quest for recovery.
