Two more down
We spent another full day in the hospital, but we are making progress. B had a double dose with two procedures today. The first was to get tubes for both ears - a really basic surgery that should help with both his hearing and chronic infections, yippee! The second was to replace his feeding tube because he has already grown out of the one we did a month ago. It was really good timing too because when they went to put the new one in they found out that the old one had slipped almost completely out and was nearly back in the stomach which may have been adding to the increased reflux he has been having. It was not as slick as we would have liked, but this time he was sleeping soundly and should have no memory - thank goodness! So in a few days when his ears feel better and the outside and inside of his tummy aren't bothering him, if he can't get a good night's sleep, I don't know what will do it:) Since Grandma gets him all next week we are keeping our fingers crossed that he is an angel so that she will volunteer to give us a break again soon!
