Cristian had surgery today to put the G-tube in. During surgery Cristian was on the ventilator to help him breath. The surgery took approximately 3 hours. The G-tube procedure is a Beach Ball like valve that is installed into the stomach in order to feed him and give him his meds. We were hoping that after the anesthesia wore off that Cristian could be taken off the ventilator, but he wasn’t able to be taken off. Cristian complained of pain after the surgery and was given a lot of morphine. The doctors will attempt to wean Cristian off the ventilator Thursday.
