g-tube surgery updates

9:30 am - Jonah is in recovery. Everything went well! Patrice and Matt are with him right now.

8:45 am Finshing up the surgery. Everything has gone very well. Patrice just went back to the OR to re-wrap Jonah.

7:50 am - Jonah is successfully (and safely as far as we know) intubated, with leads, pulse ox, and IV EB-safely secured. I (Patrice) was back in the OR for all of that, but sat in the corner and didn't watch for intubation. Everything looks really good so far, and I assume surgery has just started. Please continue to be in prayer for sweet Jonah. We sure do love that kid.

My own little Jonah (15 months) and I are praying for your Jonut! We pray that he pulls through like a champ and bounces right back from surgery! The procedure will be a complete success and he will heal fast. We will keep checking in for updates.

Peace and blessings
Crystal & Jonah

Had Jonah's surgery on my calendar and praying for him, his safety, the medical team (wisdom to use the knowledge God has given) and for peace for the two of you. Will keep an eye out to see how to pray specifically.
