Lots of positive thoughts from the cheesy household...

misdee Mon 31-Jan-05 22:40:06

CD i have no idea what its actually called, but in simple terms, his throat is closing up. mieow may know more. i'm pretty useless with this stuff. but 18months ago, b4 the 1st op took place he lost loads of weight very quickly as he wasnt able to keep food down. the put a tube down and streatch his throat so he could eat, but now its closing again.

sparklymieow Mon 31-Jan-05 22:40:39

and can I pinch some hugs for my DS who maybe going in for an op soon too. God lets hope 2006 is better, eh Misdee??

misdee Mon 31-Jan-05 22:42:02

2005 off to a hitty start, poor nephew as well. oh and dad as well soon.

does this mean i have to have an op to keep up?

HunkerMunker Mon 31-Jan-05 22:42:18

Poor Mieow's DS too - here's some hugs just for him (nothing serious I hope, hun?)

sparklymieow Mon 31-Jan-05 22:43:47

he has an adult form of reflax, his tube to his tummy was closing up, they put a balloon down and widen the throat, but it started closing again and he is unable to keep the food down, so they are now going to open him and cut a piece out and reconnect the tube.

sparklymieow Mon 31-Jan-05 22:46:32

DS need to have his tenons sorted, and when i read up about it, it said that it needs MONTHS of recovery!!

misdee Mon 31-Jan-05 22:47:10
