Well, everything went fine. They got her tube put in with less trouble than they thought it would be (just from scar tissue/adhesions from her prior surgeries). She isn't big enough for an official G-J tube, so hers is a little different. They put in a regular G-button and fed a Corpac tube (just like the ones they put down her nose) into it and down to her intestine, and then taped the Corpac tube in place. I don't really know a whole lot about it yet, but I'll have to take a class this week, probably on Tuesday, so I should know more then. (Although I wonder how much of the stuff will apply, since her tube is different...)
I told Dr. Partrick our scheduled departure date, so everyone who needs to know is now aware (Jann the case manager talked to Dr. Soden the other day.) And Dr. Sandoval was there for the surgery, which was reassuring, knowing that the same people who'd done all of her surgeries were taking care of her again.
I'm slightly overwhelmed by the amount of stuff that needs to get done this week to be ready to go, but I know it'll get done somehow. Please everyone pray that her recovery from this goes smoothly and that nothing unexpected (negative, anyway) happens so we can take our trip as planned!
