Time to celebrate! Dr. Manfredi said Lucas’ esophagus “looks REALLY good”. The lower stricture appears to have held its shape. There is a small indentation on the left side. However, Dr. Manfredi said the indentation was there back in December. So, he isn’t worried at all. The upper stricture may be even bigger now than in December. Wow! This means the food Lucas is eating is naturally expanding his esophagus. Feeling so blessed.
For the next 2 months, we will continue to enjoy life in AZ. In April, Dr. Manfredi wants us to return to Boston to have a scope performed to visually view the esophagus and most likely perform another dilation. If all goes as planned, Lucas will have 6 whole months between his last dilation in November to his next dilation in April. Our dreams are coming true of having more and more time between dilations.
Thank you for all of the prayers. We know the Lord has big plans for Lucas’ life. I can’t even put into words how happy we are to be home for 2 more months. We treasure every minute we are at home rather than at a hospital.
