ICU

We are in ICU and settled in, as settled in as you can be in ICU. Kyle is doing well for what he's been through. His epidural is working very well and that is helping with his pain control. Poor kid has a total of 3 IV's, a central line, a GJ tube, a urine catheter and a bile bag hanging off of him and he's being amazing. He has been a little confused and quiet but that is also to be expected. He had some blood pressure issues during surgery but we are keeping a close eye on that and so far so good. He's pretty puffy and working hard to breathe but that should improve over the next few days. His surgeon is amazing and is very hopeful that this latest surgery should be very helpful for Kyle. His plans are to be aggressive with his gut and to start pump feeds this weekend, we will know at that point if this surgery was a success...

Thank you as always for the support and the kindness so many of you have shown our family and Kyle...

Kate,
I am glad that things went well, considering the serious surgery Kyle has gone through.
I am also happy that Kyle is being amazing, like I expected anything less! Good luck with the feeds, I hope the surgery was the answer to his digestion problems,
We will continue praying
