Isaac is back from surgery & everything went well. He'll be kept still & sedated over the next few days to allow both the stoma (hole for the trach) & G-tube tract to mature & heal. As with most surgical procedures, the first 24 hours are most critical. The areas of concern following these two procedures are infection, stability of the airway, and stomach pulling away from suture site. So far, Isaac's holding steady & cute as can be without the tape on his face.
