Richie's doctor just visited and said that he is scheduling a CT scan for Richie today. He is worried that the aorta graft might be too close to Richie's intestines, and that over time they may rub against each other and cause problems. He said that if they are too close, he will have to go back in and put a "buffer" of fat between them. Our request would be that this would not be necessary, but we are confident that God has a plan for Richie's good either way.
Also pray that Richie can down the awful CT contrast and not feel too sick. He's been so happy to be able to drink liquids, but now he won't be able to for awhile. Not fun.
