Tomorrow morning (Friday) at 10:30AM, Kayleigh is scheduled for surgery. The doctors want to open Kayleigh up to see what the underlying factors that are causing her to feeds to back up. The last GI test did not determine if there was a narrowing in her intestines, but the contrast has not exited her body like it should have, so that is throwing up a big red flag. If the doctor finds something, they will fix the problem right then and there. If they don't find anything, I am afraid at what may be causing this and what would happen from here on out.
The incision will be across the stomach and above her belly button, so she will have a scar. I told Aimee not to worry because she will not be taking her shirt off until she is married anyways (ha-ha). I feel that the scar will be very small by the time she grows up. I will call it her battle wound.
In the long run, no one wants their child to go through surgery, but we feel it is the best option for her to get over this feeding issue. We need her to grow and grow faster! If she continues to stay on the TPN (Triple Mix Nutrients), it can cause more damage to her system than we need.
So please pray for our little one as the surgery isn't suppose to last but for around an hour or so. We will certainly be on pins and needles until we get some news. I am sure you all will be too, so I will try to get back and post before too late.
This journey has been a trying time for our family and as I try to make jokes and give you guys a laugh, I am really freaking out inside. I guess it is my way to cope with all the stress. Some call us strong, but the strong one is not me. Aimee is my true strength and she is the reason I have not gone off the deep end yet. Some might call me crazy because of my poopy song and dance, but you know what? Your right! This is a wild and crazy situation, but without Aimee there to love me, strengthen me and help keep my eyes on the right path, I would have done a lot more crazy things than that. She is a Godsend and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful woman in my life. With God joining us together, she is the reason I have eternal life because without her, I would have been preparing for eternity in hell. She keeps me closer to perfect than anyone ever will. I am truly in awe of how someone would ever hook me up with the most amazing person in the world. I love you sweetheart and thank you for loving me!
Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers as we go through a tough day tomorrow.
