Ryan was scheduled to have his vagus nerve stimulator battery replaced at 1:00 today, but the surgeon was running late. He ended up going back at 2:30 and thankfully after interrogating the unit, the battery was dead but everything else was working just fine. He is now in recovery, and Travis just went back to be with him. We are thankful everything went smoothly and hope to be out of here in the next two hours. Thank you for your prayers!
The Lord has blessed us with every surgery as Ryan has come through the anesthesia with no problems. Now we just need to continue to pray he does not develop another ileus which he has already had three times after surgery. Travis has mandatory training all day tomorrow so I will be home with him, and we will spend lots of time resting. Again, thank you for your prayers. I’m sure Ryan will be very sore for a few days, but he is a strong little man and I know he will heal quickly.
