Things have been okay! We stopped Alex's PCA pump of pain meds so now he has to ask the nurse for medicine when he hurts. Alex is not good about this so we have had some pain.
Despite Alex's xray still showing an ileus, surgery gave the okay for us to try some sugar water into his tube. He is doing pretty well. We had quite a bit of bile output (500 cc's), but we are replacing fluids. The only other concern is his pancreatic enzymes took a big jump this morning. We are hoping it is just a fluke and they will come back down.
There is some mention of us going home towards the end of the week if we can get some formula going. So keep your fingers crossed!
