We met with the pediatric surgeon today. He said that Wyatt has done beautifully and they are ready to proceed with the repair of his diaphragm. We have been asked to be at UK Hospital tomorrow at 11:00 am. He will be an “add on” case to the OR log so hopefully they will get him into surgery early in the afternoon. However, if an emergency case comes in he could be bumped to Wednesday. So we will spend the afternoon hanging out with Wyatt and waiting for the call to come. Earlier this afternoon they tried to place a long term IV line so that the lines in his belly button could be removed. Typically they don’t like to use those longer than 10 days. They weren’t able to get the line placed and Wyatt became very agitated. However, his stats held steady even while he was upset which is a very good sign. The doctor said if the repair went well tomorrow they might just skip over placing the permanent line and go with a traditional IV as the lines wouldn’t be needed for an extended period of time. The surgery itself will take anywhere from 1 hour to 2.5 hours depending on how extensive the repair needs to be. They won’t know until they actually get a good look at the diaphragm. We promise to keep everyone posted as soon as we know anything more about the surgery or his results.
