there she blows!!!

Well, Owen had his first blowout early this morning and boy am I glad I wasn't here for that! It sounds like the entire bed was a mess. He is officially out of the CICU and no longer has any needles, pokies, or other foreign objects stuck in him (other than the feeding tube and oxygen prong thingy). Since the heart lines are out we are finally able to hold him again so that’s been nice.OT/PT came back again today to work on the feeding, but Owen didn't want to have anything to do with the bottle. Hopefully, he picks up on it quickly because I don't want to have to take him home with the feeding tube still in. It sounds like they do send quite a few kids home with the tube, but we're not so excited about the prospect of that happening. The doctor visits today and been non stop.As soon as one leaves another is in 5 minutes later… I think they are trying to get us outta here asap. We could be going home as early as Thursday. Anyone out there want to start up a fund for us to pay one of the nurses to come home with us… anyone… anyone… Bueller?
