Alex had his surgery this morning. He is doing well. He has a fever, but that is par for the course with Alex and anesthesia. His tube is in place for now. The question is how long will it last. The next time it comes out we will do a big, invasive surgery and place a separate J tube.

The colonoscopy also went okay. Alex's colon looks good. They don't see any sign of infection.

Now we need to wait 24-48 hours for Alex's body to settle down from the anasthesia so we can start feeds and see how he does.

Alex's pancreas enzymes have decreased every day. The pain is gone. The concern at this point is that it will flare when we start feeds.

Thank you for all the prayers.
