Lucas's surgery is scheduled for tomorrow, 7/23.
It could take up to 6 hours, and they won't know how much of his bowel tissue is viable until they open him up so the results will determine whether this is an issue for a few more weeks while they rehab healthy tissue or for several more years with a potential transplant down the road.
Needless to say, we're terrified and could use all the thoughts, prayers, and positive energy you can spare. Thanks for the continued support, and I'll update when I can, although I'm not sure when that will be.
DS born at 34 weeks with (surprise!) gastroschisis. After 3 surgeries and 131 days in the NICU, we're finally HOME!
