Let me just start by saying that I loooove fall. It's my favorite season and so fitting that my mother named me Autumn. We have another crazy month on our hands that begins with Brian flying out on Monday for some work training in Dallas. He will fly back on Friday, we will attend a wedding on Saturday, drive to Indy on Saturday night, and fly to Miami on Sunday morning. Brian won a contest at work so we decided to get some "us" time and make it a mini vacation. His wonderful momma is gonna take care of Ty for us until we fly back late Wednesday night. Thursday morning we will take Ty to Riley where he will undergo the procedure that (cross your fingers) will hopefully fix the kidney reflux and also have a g-tube (feeding) tube placed. Finally coming to the decision to go ahead with the feeding tube is one that Brian and I have spent many hours and many prayers on. Tyler has gone back and forth between losing weight and staying the same for some time now. We can see a decline in his energy level and he is dehydrated most of the time. I know thisis a topic that people have many different views and opinions on but for us this is the right decision for Tyler at this time. We will still be feeding as much orally as he will take but it will give us great comfort knowing that we can supplement and maintain the right hydration for him. Keep us in your prayers for safe travels and a successful surgery and recovery. Happy Fall Friends!
