Off to the hospital on Tuesday


I won't be around for a couple of days, we are going to Children's Hospital first thing in the morning for surgery on Skyler.

He is going to have a G-Tube inserted into his stomach. This is so we can provide him with extra nutrition and get some weight on him. He is pretty skinny because it takes so much work for him to eat. And he will need some more weight on him before his surgery in November to straighten his spine.

So, see you all on the other side, and we will take all the good vibes/well wishes you all have to spare!

    the good news is that, while invasive, this sort of thing is done all the time and is relatively simple. Don't be surprised when he asks you to throw a pizza and beer in the blender for him at 1 AM!!
