Just a lot of little steps today!
Here are a couple pics of mommy and Tyler. Ty loves looking out - he's VERY visual! Last night the nurse said Tyler wouldn't settle down - she changed diaper, gave him paci, he ate, etc. but just wasn't settled. She happened to turn on the light to look for something and he immediately quieted down, watched his mobile a minute and fell asleep.
Today daddy talked the docs into putting Tyler on Zantac for his acid reflux. Ty just hasn't been taking his bottles lately and our talks with him about finished bottles being his "ticket home" haven't worked. He's been very irritated when drinking and has coughing and reflux spells that have gotten increasingly worse. Well, after his first dose of Zantac, Tyler gulped down almost all of his bottle for mommy! He hasn't done that in a long time. We're hoping this will be the transition to our journey home!
This pic of Tyler is so funny because he's just staring out at daddy. Notice the double chins?
Parker update: Today Parky needed time to recover and couldn't get all of his feeds down. Luckily instead of putting his ng tube back in the docs put him on "feeds on demand". So as long as Parker drinks 200mls per shift, he can eat when he wants. If this works then his trip home is sooner than later! Besides a few doses of Tylenol, Parker's surgery is a faint memory - to him, not to US of course! ;o)
