Sophia’s J- Tube Conversion

We are going to Schneiders children’s hospital today for Sophia’s conversion from a g-tube to a gj Tube. The reason for this is because SMA babies can still aspirate on the contents of their stomaches. As our doctor put it “It could be a MORBID EVENT!” There has to be a better way of describing the risks involved than MORBID! Like high risk. Anyway we will be able to relax a lil bit after this surgery. Sophia’s feedings will now bypass her stomache and be fed directly into her intestines. This will help reduce the risk of aspirations. We have not been able to pick Sophia up or hold her since the G-Tube Surgery and we are Looking forward to holding her and hugging her again. Please say your prayers today that all goes well. Thanks The Gaynors
