Surgery today

CURRENT WEIGHT: 4 LBS, 9.8 OUNCES (2100 GRAMS)

Truman is getting ready for surgery today, which has been pushed back to 5 p.m. He had his last meal for a few days at 8 a.m. He breastfed like a champ -- even choking himself from being such a little piggy. Maybe he knew it was his last shot for a while. He'll be fed by IV nutrition for a few days before slowly starting food again. He will not be happy about this. He also got an IV this morning to begin preventive antibiotics and get blood before surgery.

What a wonderful Thanksgiving blessing...the next step to having Truman at home with you. I will say an extra prayer this evening, as well as a prayer on Thanksgiving Day for the little miracle named Truman.
