There is a lot to be considered. The Nissan (prouncounced "ness-en") is a MAJOR surgery which could have some very serious side-effects and problems. I won't list them all because it's near midnight and I need sleep. If it works correctly it would stop the reflux which would in turn stop the apneas. But if it goes wrong there's a lot of problems it could cause. The g-j tube is NOT a permanent solution... it's temporary. Now, he might outgrow the reflux a little... or at least enough that he wouldn't need the surgery or he might not.
Anyway, there's too much to put down here. Just pray for us- that God would give us, the surgeon, the specialists, and others involved wisdom to make the right choice. It's overwhelming.
Today was a great day by the way. Alexis came over and helped me with the kids.... and we even took all four of them out! She stayed in the car with Libby and Samuel and they watched the land before time while I took the twins upstairs to the doctor's. We also braved Starbucks today. We were brave. It was chaos. Sweet chaos. Alexis describes it as crazy, fun, and frustrating... that's it in a nut shell :) Samuel was running EVERYWHERE. Ian was crying (needing to be nursed). Libby was upset because I took the straw off her drink. Yeah, I'm crazy. A friend bought me a notepad that I love: "I'm not suffering from insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it." So true.
We picked up dinner at Chick-fil-A... so fun and put the kids down early-ish and then enjoyed paper crafts projects and Princess Diaries. Thank you Alexis!
Well, to bed. To bed. sleep awaits.
