More Answers…. More Surgery

Standard

The results are in from the Upper GI test we had done yesterday and the provide us with some important answers as to why Lyra has so much trouble keeping food down.

At this stage, I don’t have an exact date for when surgery will happen. We are hoping for September 14th. I don’t have more information to give, but I have provided some links below with additional information about the condition:
