On Tuesday, Lucas’ next dilation is scheduled for 12pm at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. I would be lying if I said I’m not nervous. However, I know we have the two best surgeons performing the surgery. Dr. Egan and Dr. Graziano are our A Team! In my heart, I believe Lucas will come out of the surgery without any leaks and his larger esophagus will allow him to drink more formula at each sitting. In turn, he will have fewer feedings and maybe he’ll even nap for more than 15 – 30 minutes at a time since his stomach could be feeling full.
Dr. Schraff agreed to stop in for 10 – 15 minutes to fully scope Lucas’ trachea during the surgery. Tomorrow is a big day for Lucas.
Thank you for the many prayers. The Lord constantly gives us the much needed strength to make it through every trying situation that Lucas is put through. We are truly blessed.
