Aleah's Tooth Surgery

Our Beautiful, Smart, amazing daughter. Aleah!
Aleah has a really nasty abscess tooth.  She was in a lot of pain.  Poor Girl.
The dentist said, "We needed to pull this tooth." They are going to put in a spacer so the teeth stay aligned.
Aleah, had some other work they needed to do along with a cleaning. We opted to have her go under for the procedures.  That way Aleah wouldn't remember anything.  SWEET!!!  Aleah had her Surgery Wen Sept 19th.  Aleah was under for about 1- 1/2 hours.  She was a real big trouper.  She is out of surgery and doing well.

Aleah, wrote this letter to the Dentist.
Translation, "Thank you for doing my Surgery"

Aleah, made three of these one for the dentist and two for the nurses. She put a stick of gum, and some yogurt covered raisin.  What a girl!!!!

If you remember Blake was suppose to have a Nissen Fudoplacation June 6th Go to this post to read all about why he needs the Nissen. The surgery was cancelled June 5th because Blake was very sick and had a collapsed lung.You can read more by going to this post.
  This has been a long awaitied procedure but finally it happened. Monday July 30 Blake had his Surgery (Nissen Fundoplication) at Summerlin Hospital in Las Vegas by  Dr Kogut. he did an amazing job.  Blakes only stayed in the hospital for two days.  His recovery was so quick, there were no complications. Yeah! Thank you everyone for all your prayers and support.  We love you all.

This surgery really improved Blakes eating. We were able to switch from the GJ-Tube to just a G-tube Sept 9th.
This allows Blake to eat through his tummy!!  Yeah ( if you would like more info on the different tubes go here. )
We are so thriled with the results of the surgery.
