hi sweet baby=)
the trip to charlottesville was great! we had the best time seeing your old friends. they all kept saying how big you were (you weighed 15 pounds 2 ounces!!!) and that you looked great. mommies and daddies love to hear that sort of thing=) you were showing off big-time, talking and smiling and revealing all the new things you've learned in the past 3 months. we took you to chipotle where daddy and i used to eat a lot-i can't wait till you're a big girl and we can go back to all these places. i think you will have fun learning about where you lived for 4 months and what mommy and daddy did waiting for you to get well enough to come home and live with us. dr rodgers loved seeing you=) he is great. i think we've told you that a few times before. you had an upper gi series (they put barium down your ng tube and then take several x-rays in sequence to see where it goes) and it showed that you were still refluxing (which was not a surprise at all) and also that your stomach emptied really REALLY slowly. we didn't really know that yet but i guess it makes sense, right? so anyway we all agreed let's do this. dr rodgers scheduled your surgery for this tuesday. we were really thankful he was able to do it so soon and get it over with. we know it's no fun for you to throw up so much and to have an ng tube put down to your tummy every week! so tuesday you'll get a g-tube and a nissen (i figured out how to spell it-but the official word is fundoplication. yikes.) and they'll also do a pyloroplasty to make the opening from your stomach to your intestines bigger. this will help your stomach empty faster and hopefully it won't fill up so quickly that you need to throw up. i am so sad you have to have surgery again. daddy and i keep saying little comments about how much we hate that part but then we just remind ourselves how much easier life will be for all 3 of us after it's all done. so we'll be back in charlottesville for a week. we can do this.
i love you baby-
