Hospital update

Well our upper GI test on Friday at CDH was changed at the last minute to a second ultrasound, which revealed Pyloric Stenosis. Robbie was immediately taken down to the ER and put on an IV and monitored. We were then admitted to the hospital and taken to the Pediatrics floor. His surgery was scheduled for Saturday morning, and it went very well. Due to the Dr's schedule, it was able to be performed here at CDH! His first feeding of Pedialyte happened one hour after surgery and went down and stayed down. The next few feedings were a little tougher and he would occasionally spit up, so we took it slow and let Robbie set the feeding pace.

This morning he had his first bottle of 100% breastmilk! He has held it down and is really starting to look and act like the baby we knew before he got sick.

Rob and I were both able to sleep through the night last night as Aunt Cheryl took care of Robbie until 2am, and then the nurse took care of him for us after that until we woke up. We feel like brand new people. :)

Thank you for your prayers, and we will let you know when we're able to go home! (Either this afternoon or tomorrow.)
