Sorry that we haven't posted an update in a few days, folks. Things have been a little busy!
So yesterday morning, we found out that Dr. Hebra, the surgeon who performed Jude's two previous hernia repair surgeries, wants to do his third hernia repair operation tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon. In addition to addressing the recurrence of Jude's hernia, our understanding is that Dr. Hebra will also do an anti-reflux procedure called a Nissen fundoplication and place a gastrostomy feeding tube (G-tube), which goes directly into the stomach. More details about the surgery and the specific time are forthcoming, but this is what we know at the moment.
As always, we covet your prayers for Jude's health and for the wisdom and skill of the medical staff caring for him. God is good, and we know he'll carry us through this next trial.
Thanks, friends. We'll keep you posted!
