21st Surgery on Friday

Lucas’ surgery is scheduled for 7:30am on Friday. Our arrival time at the hospital is 5:45am.

The surgeons will complete a colonoscopy, Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT, stool transplant to hopefully eliminate the C. Diff infection he’s battled since January), and a scope down Lucas throat to determine how last week’s dilation is healing which in turn should let us know when we can go home and/or have the next dilation.

Today, Lucas can only consume clear liquids. He tried orange jello for the 1st time and it was a big hit! Every jello cup has 90 calories. So maybe he’ll end the day with close to 600 calories. Better than nothing.

Tonight & tomorrow morning, we need to administer an enema on Lucas. So excited for that treat. Ha! We already gave Lucas the senna syrup which kick started his stooling. He has one more dose of senna this evening.

This afternoon, we took Lucas outside to get some fresh air (see below picture). Surprisingly, he’s been in fairly good spirits. Praying he gets some rest tonight in between stools. Most importantly, praying the surgeons say his colon looks perfect with no issues.
