12 Sep '06 - 138 W - + 22 - 15 Another good news, bad news day...

Alex finally started saying Mama tonight!  Dan got him to say it during dinner, and he continued after he got the reaction that he did.  Yeah, I finally exist!

As for the other news, Alex will be having another minor surgery on September 29th.  His g-tube hole, even though they "closed" it surgically, has never healed.  Apparently, three non-dissolvable stitches were used to close the muscle over his tummy, and they've irritated the wound and prevented it from healing.  So, they will go in and find and remove three stitches and replace them with dissovable ones.  Hopefully, it will be finally allow his belly "boo-boo" to heal.  For those who are counting, this will be Alex's 21st trip to the OR.

I hope this minor surgery will do the trick! He’s such a brave boy! Good luck!

Good Luck Alex. Those Doctor’s do wonderful things. Get better so you can play on the new swingset and Mom and Dad can take lots of pictures.
Hugs and Prayers, Mammy and Pappy Coy.
