When Can I Go Home?

Annie got her G-J tube placed this morning, and should be getting food through her jejunum by this evening. We had to go this route because going through her stomach was getting us nowhere--she kept throwing everything up. As of yesterday, she had gained back two pounds just from the TPN, so we are thankful for that. She had been down from about 43 lbs. to 38 and change...and now she's back up to over 41. Now we'll see how she tolerates food into the jejunum, and hopefully, we can start tapering off the TPN. Then, we'll go home.

As always--we are grateful for your continued prayers.
