An Update on Gabriel-Athan

Gabriel went to his GI appointment today and he is almost at 12lbs. He is about 3% height and weight for his age. The positive is that he is growing within his own curve. They broke the news to us that the G-tube and Nissen surgery is most probably going to happen within the next month. We have to schedule an appointment to see the surgeon. While he is growing and taking some bottle feeds by mouth, the severe reflux and slow progress make the surgery inevitable.

We even got todrop in to the NICU and visit with some of the doctors and nurses in the NICU today. They are such wonderful people and it made them happy to see him progressing so well.

Enjoy the pics that we took of Gabriel and Demetra the other day.
