Annabel will be having surgery today at 2:30pm. Please keep her in your prayers. We will not know which surgery, PEG or fundoplication, will be performed until the doctor has already begun. Pray that they find a vein for the IV which is always a struggle with her, for the anesthesiologist to be able to get the tube down her throat, and that the procedure is performed with accuracy. Thank you everyone for your support and I will keep the page updated as information arrives.
Thanks to everyone for their prayers. They got a vein with just a little trouble and her airway was successful. As we hoped, she is going to end up with just a PEG button placed along her stomach slightly off to the left side. If all goes well we will be home tomorrow afternoon. I am hoping to join Annabel very soon in recovery. Again, thank you for your prayers offered up on Annabel's behalf.
