Pain, Pain, Go Away...

Sam's surgery went well. He is breathing on his own and is in a regular pediatric room. It is private for now as Sam still has a bacteria in his GI tract. This is complicating his healing course a little bit, but he should be fine. All of Sam's doctors are trying to give him the best course of treatment as possible. Sam's surgeon did a really great job as Sam was able to get his new tube placed in the same stoma as he had before. The worst part of this whole ordeal is that Sam is in a ton of pain. The docs are of course trying to keep him comfortable, but how comfortable can you get in a hospital with tubes and drains sticking out of your stomach. We should be home by Friday. Please continue to pray that everything goes smoothly and that Sam's pain subsides fast. Thanks so much.
