G-tube (PEG) is in, we are home

All things considered, yesterday's surgery went pretty well. I'm extremely sleep deprived but thought I'd share some pics from yesterday and today before I go crash for a few hours. What a difference between days 1 and 2.

Day 1

Tyler w/diapered bum hanging out.
Sometimes you can't take the father out of the boy.

A perfect tummy.

A quick pre-op picture with Daddy

And Mommy

After the surgery (he was a bleeder)

Later that evening, hooked up to morphine drip

Day 2

He was crabby so I let him play with the camera just so I could change his diaper. (Not so bad considering I hadn't showered or put on make-up, running on 1.5 hrs of sleep.)

Waiting for the pain meds to start working.

His crib (aka The Birdcage)

Him back to being playful.


  1. Wow! I can't believe you guys are already home! Our doc is planning on keeping us here till Sunday/Monday. I am so happy that Tyler is doing so amazing! Give that sweet boy a kiss for me!

  2. I double what she said! Tyler looks like he took this all in stride. What a strong kiddo!

  3. WOAH!! Those are some crazy pix, I can't believe someone so little is doing such brave things already. Thanks for the update, I love keeping up with you guys. Also, so good to see your face. :D
