A wee bit of surgery

Well, G’s reflux turns out to not be reflux, but a very common physiological problem called pyloric stenosis. It is very common in babies. It is very common at Children’s Hospital, where G will have his surgery later today. In fact, it is very common in first-born boys, strangely enough.

The doctors expect him to make a full recovery very quickly because of his age, health and the fact that surgery isn’t very extreme. Also, the surgeon doing the procedure does dozens of these a year.

Both Susan and I are doing fine. The three of us are in great spirits, under the circumstances. Just keep G in your prayers over the next few days and we will post as we have the chance to update his status.
