What a long day already! Alex is doing fine. Surgery took MUCH longer then planned. We were told one and a half hours and it took four! Alex's G tube was in the way because of the placement of his stomach while doing the pyloroplast​y.. Luckily we had a Great surgeon who took his time and was able to complete the the surgery laparoscopi​cally. The gallbladder removal was uneventful. Alex did fine with anesthesia.

He is not very happy right now. They have an ng tube down his nose and hooked to suction. They are also draining his gtube. His belly is hurting, but he is being a trooper. We are trying to stay ahead of his pain. The plan is to wait about 5-7 days before attempting very slow feeds.

I will update again later. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.
