Linus Colostomy Closure

We have cause to celebrate! Linus has had the final surgery that was needed to repair his birth defect. This surgery was to take down the temporary colostomy and reconnect his intestines to his rectum. We are delighted to now be changing his poopie diapers!

Linus’s surgery was at UNC Children’s Hospital and it was a fairly major surgery. We had a good experience there and he did great. They gave him an epidural for pain management for the surgery and a few days afterwards, which I think really helped a lot. The staff was great, too.

You can find details about his surgery and hospital stay at his Caring Bridge site.

Here are some pictures!
