Upcoming Dilation

We are in the process of scheduling a dilation procedure/surgery at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. As expected, a stricture has formed at the repair site. This makes it difficult for Lucas to drink because the fluid backs up in his esophagus at the repair site. The surgeon will sedate Lucas and then put a tube down his throat. Once at the repair site, the tube will expand like a balloon & stretch the area. Most likely he will need another dilation 3 weeks after to further stretch the repair site.

Over the first 3 months of Lucas’ life, we’ve had an abundance of highs and lows. Through it all, we’ve always been confident that Lucas will win every battle. We will never know why God chose this path for Lucas. We just know we will keep the faith that God will continue to heal Lucas. Thank you for the prayers!

  1. As I read this, I already know the power of prayer in our precious baby’s little life. I am rejoicing in the great news that you received yesterday and am anxiously awaiting the new blog you will be writing for Lucas. He is without doubt the most beautiful little boy in the world. Love from two very prejudice grandparents, Papa and Nani Cox
