Bridgette is Back at Primary Children's

We arrived safely at Primary Children's Medical Center this morning. Bridgette got her last milk for a while and is now on a clear liquids only diet until midnight. She will be having her intestine flushed out by having 40 ounces of a solution dumped into her stomach over the course of a few hours. For this she will have a tube in her nose that we hope she doesn't yank out.

Bri will be having the pull-thru surgery tomorrow morning. For those of you who have questions about her condition and what this surgery actually is, please see this link: http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/hirschsprungs_ez/

We appreciate your thoughts and prayers, we are anxious to get this over with and move on :)
