Update on Jasper

Post by blbabe1234 » Thu Oct 17, 2019 9:52 am

Good morning cherries. What a long day yesterday was. My nephew's surgery got pushed back from 9am to a little after noon. It went well and Jasper had zero complications. He is actually doing great. He is still in the NICU and will be sedated for the next 7 to 10 days to give the trach time to heal. The G-Tube procedure went well too.

While he was under, the surgeon had a chance to evaluate his "issues". On top of having the small chin, the "nodule" in the back of the tongue is actually his uvalva (the tear drop thing that hangs in the back of your throat). It is actually SPLIT.

The genetic testing came back and it is not hereditary, but it just happens to be a missing strand of DNA that occurred during conception.

When he gets older they will be doing his hearing/sight test as children with these issues can sometimes be deaf and/or blind.

My family appreciates all the thoughts, prayers, virtual hugs, etc. This li'l guy has a long year or two ahead of him.

Brandy, my thoughts and prayers continue for sweet little Jasper.  It sounds like he has a great medical team and of course a very supportive family.

(((Jasper)))) The poor sweetie! I will definitely have him and his family in my prayers. The NICU is so nerve-wracking but they are so focused on the babies. Big hugs and prayers to all of you!!! xoxo
Happy Scrapping!
