Ryan did just fine this morning and is now cuddled on the couch with Sidney sound asleep. The surgery itself lasted less than 20 minutes; his G/J tube was replaced, his upper GI system was scoped and biopsies were taken. He did great. This was the first time he has had surgery at Boystown, and the staff there was excellent. The anesthesiologist got a bit hung up on Ryan’s seizures, but I calmly assured him there have been absolutely no issues getting general anesthesia well over twenty times with all his surgeries, dental work, CTs and MRIs. And sure enough, he came through in his usual fashion like the champ he is. He will need another dental procedure this summer which will require doing this all over again, but Ryan’s dentist does his procedures at the Catholic hospital here because they have the most state of the art equipment. Other than that, we do not have anything else scheduled medically for him aside from the usual biweekly therapies at Madonna. Thank you, once again, for sustaining Ryan and the rest of us with your prayers. We know the Lord honors them, and we greatly appreciate your support over the years.
Much love to you all!
