Dilation Tomorrow

Lucas’ next dilation is on Thursday at 1:30pm. This will be our 4th dilation surgery at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The goal is to have a dilation every 3 – 4 weeks until Lucas’ esophagus is up to 12 millimeters. After last month’s surgery we got up to 9mm. Normally we are going up 1mm per surgery. So we foresee hitting this 1st stage goal of 12mm by the end of February. But we’re not pushing the surgeons to go any faster. We are fine with achieving a small increase each time rather than stretching the esophagus too much and causing a tear.

Asking for prayers for Lucas. May he be gently held in the Lord’s protective arms.
