Nathan is one month out from his surgery. He had completed 2 weeks of feeds, tonight is night 15.  It has been rather uneventful other than some normal learning curves.  He no longer tells me “I’m full” when I go to hook him up, and had even started to help! Now it’s time to get him eating normal again!  His day time eating had decrease dramatically.

Kaedyn got hurt bad enough tonight that he went into a bit of shock! Ugh!  Mommy made it all better though.

Nathan and Kaedyn  were playing Go Fish with a Skip-bo deck this morning.  Nathan kept announcing his cards he picked up….lol…..”I got a 6!” and then had to search the go fish pile for a 3 because he wanted one, not to make a match. Lol…. Kaedyn got mad when Nate got bored and decided he was done playing.

DB got his second set of steroid shots in his back this morning.  He was to cool to be inside, he needed his shades.  They messed up on his iv, there was blood all over his hands and then when they went to flush him in post op… It went all over.  Ugh.  But it got done.

This is the insulated bag I ended up making.  I cut up an Aldi bag my girlfriend had sent me and used that.  Used the Velcro at the top of the bottom of the bag as the bottom to get the bag and ice pack in there easier.  Then made a bag for the outside where the is a hole on the bottom for the line to get fed through and otherwise supports the bag so the Velcro doesn’t have a ton of weight on it to pop it open.
