I only got to talk to Den for a few minutes today, but he told me that the dr's are more than likely going to insert a G-tube surgically into Adam's stomache. From what I understand, a G-tube (gastro-intestinal) is a direct line into the stomache that nutrients (food) can be transfered through. Their hope is that this will allow Adam to regain his strength through better nutrition and absorbtion - hopefully fatten him up a bit as they think that the problem may be caused by a lack of fatty tissue surrounding the intestines.

Den said that Adam has been feeling a little better, but they are all exhausted. I will keep you all updated as things change.

Still praying,
