The scope went well today, finding nothing that they weren’t expecting. The doctor wants to just let it ride and see how John heals. If he doesn’t continue to get better, then a more intense surgery will be required. But for now, amazing things are happening in Argentina’s throat – go figure (smile). We’ll go for a re-check in 5 weeks.
They do want to put in a G-tube. Because a G-tube requires going to sleep, therefore intubation, Dr. Rutter would like to do that in Cincy. However, the insurance company is balking a little. They say that they have good ENT’s in Atlanta.
Yes they do. As a matter of fact, we have the best ENT in Atlanta. She said go to Cincy. If the insurance company trusts the ENT in Atlanta so much, then they shouldn’t mind following her advice and paying out of network – follow my logic?
Anyway, tomorrow night John will be able to go to the Ronald McDonald house with Debby! We tentatively have the G-tube scheduled in Cincy for Thursday. I have non idea what this means for our schedules, etc., but will keep you posted.
Let’s pray – G-tube goes well, no further surgery, etc. I’ll let you know the doctor’s thoughts tomorrow.
I cannot wait for Sunday and the conclusion of our WHY> series. Mark Brown will be leading worship, and I know you'll enjoy him as much as my family does. Don't miss it - invite your One Life and pray hard...
