Surgery Day

Today the baby had surgery to receive a stomach tube, which we'll use to feed him until he learns how to eat properly. Thankfully the surgery went very well, and the baby is currently sleeping off the anesthesia. I was glad to see that the actual tube is quite thin and small, and shouldn't be bothersome to the baby. He's on a breathing tube once again, so we can't hold him right now, but hopefully the tube will be removed later tonight or by tomorrow morning.
The baby will also need another echo to determine if the blood clot is going away/gone by now, so we're waiting on that as well. He'll remain on blood thinners until we know for certain.
We certainly wish that the baby can come home this week for Shabbos, and I guess we'll see how the week plays out.
