One year on and counting

Well life for Cody is still ticking along. Nothing startling has happened since his trip to the hospital...which is a good thing.

Cody now only feeds via TPN 4 nights a week and has 2 nights off. This gives him the chance to go out with mates and hang like any other normal 17 year old.

The fistula has ended up being a fizzer and is just too hard to use. It causes Cody so much pain to use. He ends up with huge bruises and then cant access the vein either. So its back to the hicman line. Not the best solution but it works.

This will be Cody's second Christmas. A huge milestone really as all the surgeons said he wouldn't live to see last Christmas.....but here he is. A credit to his determination really.

I'm so sorry for your pain. My husband has Chrones and I understand how pain full it get's I have had to take him to the hospital so marne times. He says its lik somebody has just stuck a knife in you and starts pushing and turning at the same time. He has had two surgeys and the last 2 years he has been doing great.
I wish you the best of luck.
