Addy's Surgery

Tomorrow is Addy's second round of GI tests. She is having an Endoscopy, pH Probe, and Impedence Study. These are tests that require her to be sedated. We will report to surgery at Riley at 8:00AM, the procedure is scheduled to begin at 9:30 and is reported to last about an hour. She is expected to be in recovery for about an hour and a half. They suggested that we plan on being at the hospital for 5-6 hours. It is also my understanding that we will need to return on Friday to have the probes removed (they will leave the probes in place, we will return home and she will continue her normal activity while the monitors are recording her GI functions for 24 hours).

Please keep Addy in your thoughts over the next few days as we know this will be unpleasant for her. It's never easy to hand your child over to be sedated and poked at, but we hope this will bring us the answers we need to make her feel better in the long run. We will report back as soon as we can with outcomes, results, or updates.

Tomorrow is also our 4th wedding anniversary!

Many prayers for Addy and for Mommy and Daddy too. I know you've been waiting to uncover the answers to make things better and more comfortable for your little girl and I hope this helps reach that goal for you all.

Happy Anniversary to you guys! We have a fall anniversary too. Good choice. : )

I hope that all goes well and that you get the information you need! It's no fun to have a child sedated. I hope we never have to do it again with The Bean.
