When we went in to see Josiah today he had been taken out of his isolette and put on a warming tray in readiness for his surgery tomorrow. He had also had a PICC Line put in which will give him his IV fluids after the surgery – the disturbing thing is they put it in his head! 😦
Well the surgery that happened when Josiah was 1lb 9oz will tomorrow be reversed – He will be 3lb 11oz. They had hoped to do the surgery when he was around 5lb, however the fact that they made a mistake in the initial surgery and mixed up the ostomy and the mucus fistula has made it difficult for him to put on weight.
Please agree with us for a few things
1) Wisdom and insight for the surgeons – They made a mistake the first time – we don’t want any more mistakes.
2) Angelic Protection for Josiah – We have been told that the surgery will be quite painful for Josiah – so we really want him lifted up and knowing the comfort of God throughout.
3) Quick Recovery – He will have to be intubated – We are asking that this will not be long so that he has no lung damage at having the breathing tube again while so small.
We still don’t know when the surgery will be – Shari and I will have to be in hospital all day just in case as he is an “add on surgery” but there is every indication it will be early afternoon Kansas City time
Thanks for your Prayers
Jono, Shari and Josiah
