Max goes into surgery today for g-tube

Max will be going in around 11:30am this morning to have his g-tube insertion procedure. Shouldn't be a long one which is good. We held back from telling him until last night and he was actually happy about it, as we had been hinting (as part of our failed attempt to get him to eat more) that he might have to have a tube put up his nose. Hopefully this does the trick. His appetite has improved somewhat but we're committed to doing this anyway until we can see some appreciable weight gain in him. Still on track to start chemo+zometa+nifurtimox+ascorbate on Monday.
