Anthony had a good night and is now up to 30cc/hour of Peptamen via his new J-tube. I would guess that he will come home tomorrow if everything continues to go as planned. Tomorrow will be a busy day changing the dressing, maybe the tubes. Not sure if the current tubes are the same type he will come home with. Will also need to continue his TPN for a while as we work on increasing his calories via the j-tube. Will need new orders and supplies. So with all the paperwork etc, we will likely get home mid-to-late afternoon tomorrow.
Here is a photo of Anthony’s abdomen (apologies to those who might be a bit squeamish). They were able to use the same incision yet again, but this time not quite as long a cut.
