Well, it's time again.  Alex is going to the OR tomorrow for the 18th time, this time to have his g-tube hole closed and possibly dilate his esophagus.  I say possibly because the surgeon never got back to us on whether or not he'll have time to do that too.  Alex is scheduled to be 3rd case, which we're not looking forward to.  The surgery is supposed to start at 11:40 AM, and Alex can't eat for 6 hours prior...meaning that he'll go all night and morning without food (or anything but clear liquids)...meaning that we're going to have a grumpy Alex on our hands.  For a kid who spent so much of his life not knowing hunger, he sure has learned quickly!

 In any case, we expect to be at the hospital at least overnight (Albany Medical Center) and will post on the results as soon as we are able.  This will be our first extended experience at AMC, so we're not sure if we'll have access to computers like we did at Hershey.  Wish us luck!

We’ll be thinking of you!
((((((vibes for a flawless procedure for Alex)))))
