Caleb is scheduled to go in and have his cecostomy tube replaced on Wednesday. Because of the nature of the tube it has to be replaced once a year.
Unlike the initial surgery the replacement of his cecostomy tube is only a day surgery. They snip off the current button, push the remainder of the tube into his bowel, and then insert the new tube into the existing hole. We have been told that the actual hands on time for the surgeon is less than 10-minutes.
Caleb is feeling quite nervous about the upcoming operation on Wednesday and said this at one of our recent appointments at the Alberta Children’s Hospital:
He would appreciate your prayer for Wednesday.
