We’re back in good old Brighton for a general check up. I’d missed the staff here so it’s nice to be back and see some of them.
The dietician is happy George is putting on enough weight.
He’s suggested we can be less regimented with our feed and washout routine, which is a real Godsend.
We are also free to lose his feeding tube when we’re ready as we’re not reliant on it at all – if we’re honest, it’s just become the fast option for a night feed. Straight down the tube!
We just spoke to the main consultant; Dr N (the name he goes by as even HE struggles to pronounce his surname I think).
The second biopsy results – though again not 100% conclusive, tell him enough that George does indeed have Hirschsprung’s and will be having the corrective operation in January or February.
He hopes it will be a single keyhole surgery, but it could be two operations depending on the way it’s done.
We’ll find out more procedural details and any risks when we’re back here for a further check up the first week of the new year.
It’s nice to know where we’re at.
