The operation was a success.

KayTar's didn't have surgery this time...her baby did! A friend sent us an unopened, expired g-button so we could place one in a doll for KayTar. I spent Friday night trying to figure out if we could place it in Baby Alive and maintain her GI function, but without some sort of tiny doll MRI machine, it was highly unlikely. (We did try placing her in front of a super bright flashlight to try to visualize where her internal tubing was, but no luck. Do we know how to have fun on a Friday night or what?!) So today I picked her up a new chubby baby and prepped her for surgery...

I marked her incision site with a sharpie.

Surgery was a success!

Recovering well post-op.

Waiting to see her parents.

Ready for discharge!


So, do you think I can put this on my med school applications? ;)

you should TOTALLY put that on your app. or at least in your cover letter (do you send cover letters?) any school who doesn't appreciate that doesn't deserve you.

Fabulous! Back when my daughter used to have a trach (as well as a g-tube)we gave one of her dolls a trachestomy. :)
