G-tube and Fundo Surgery

Gabriel had an appointment with his surgeon, Dr. Stolar yesterday as a followup to the GI appointment we had last week and we have all come to the conclusion that it will be in his best interest to have a G-Tube inserted. While he is in there Dr. Stolar believes that a Fundoplaction will be to Gabriel's benefit as well. These past two weeks his reflux has gotten worse, he is very irritable and he is practically not taking the bottle at all anymore and his feed compression has slowed down. The NG-tube hasn't been that bad to this point, but he is now getting to the age where his hands constantly are grasping for it. We put gloves on his hands but that isn't fair for him either and it decreases his motor skills.
So we are planning on going in for surgery on July 14. Otherwise he is going pretty good.
