    The surgery to place the J-Tube took about 3and a half hours rather than the estimated 1 hour. But the doctor said all is well. The tube had to pass through the stomach and duodenum to get to the Jejunum and they had some difficulty getting thru the stomach due to a blockage there. Now, I am getting this from my husband and not from the Doctor, so I don't know if that blockage is something in the stomach or is it the artery that is wrapped around the duodenum....
    anyhow he made it through the surgery and I reckon they will start nutrition up again real soon. Since his pic line came out I think 10 days ago he has only had soda for food, and has lost several of the precious pounds gained via the pic line. So hopefully things will be getting on the right track again.

    Dino,
    He will come home when they figure out what is wrong with him, and are able to treat it. Noah and I hope that the mesentary artery syndrome was a result of the weight he lost from pancreatitis and that the rest of his illness has been due to the artery. We further hope that with this new feeding tube the artery will correct itself when his weight gets back to normal, and that THAT won't need to be corrected by major surgery. We are probably looking at a few more months. I really don't know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    The feeding tube splits into three sections. One is in his stomach to drain off any stomach fluids (bile, acid etc) and contents. Another is an anchor to keep the tube from pulling out. The final section goes into the Jejunum to deliver the nutrients and medications. They are keeping his stomach totally empty. The only thing he is permitted by mouth is an occasional ice chip.

    When he does get discharged we will leave a prepaid postal box up there so that any cards etc can be forwarded home.

    there are two laptops in the hospital and they have been trying to get him one for sometime now. the same person has had one of them for several weeks. I wish that they would at least ask him to let noah use it for a bit. he probably isnt even aware anyone else is wanting to use it.

    You could call the charge nurse of the floor Noah is on & make a polite request. If they are the hospital's then I would think they would have to share...
