  2. December 5th Update

    Bryson is holding his own and doing fair. The nurses say he's better than text book! He has already overcome so many hurdles but has many more hurdles ahead of him. With the surprised esophagus surgery, (TEF/EA) it looks like a 3 month minimum stay in NICU. He NEVER was on ECMO. PTL.

ID:	539Bryson made it through surgery and did “better than expected.” They were able to do a full repair with no complications. There were 2 areas instead of just one that was connected to his GI track but it was repaired with no problem and the esophagus was able to be connected to the other part without any need to use other foreign parts.
