1.6.11 Peter has surgery

Peter had surgery for a feeding tube at UCI hospital yesterday. The tube was needed to maintain his weight and keep up his nutrient and fluid intake. Due to the fact that chewing and swallowing are getting more difficult for him, his doctors recommended the tube. The surgery went well and he is resting at home. There is some discomfort but he should be feeling pretty good in about a week. Peter says it feels like he has 4 broken ribs.  Peter was reluctent to get the tube but the doctor said that he will have more energy. Now he will just eat what he can for fun and get 90% of his calories from liquid nutrition through the tube. We were thankful for the great care of the doctors and nurses, they were so kind to us.Thank you for your prayers.

    Dear Peter,
    So glad the surgery is over. We trust you will bloom from easier food intake. We had Progresso Chicken Corn Chowder from Costco today and thought you would like to try some when you’re ready for a taste treat.
    You care is so good and you’ll heal and rest well now that the nourishment is forthcoming.
    Love to you and Drea,
    Mom and Dad
