On Thursday, Lucas is scheduled for his 24th surgery at 12:15pm ET. Feeling calm and relaxed about tomorrow’s surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.
During today’s Esophageal Atresia Clinic, all of the staff commented on how much weight Lucas has put on in the last 4 weeks. He went from weighing 23.85 lbs and being in the 24th% for weight to weighing 24.82 lbs and being in the 33rd% for weight. Our nutritionist said “Lucas looks so good!” and “Look at his chunky checks!”.
Tomorrow, Lucas is having blood drawn while sleeping under anesthesia to have tests run to determine whether or not his rickets are improving. The significant weight gain is a good sign that we could finally be making some progress and eventually get rid of the rickets.
