Feeding Tube

Ethan pulled his feeding tube out by himself by accident this afternoon. The pediatrician reccomended we keep it out to see how he does with his feedings. I'm very please to report that he has taken every drop offered to him since the bottle before the tube came out. This means that they will watch his feeds for the next 48 hours, do his newborn hearing screen on Monday morning (only because they don't do them on the weekends) and get Richard and I CPR trained and we will most likely be coming home on Monday. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Right now he is sleeping like an angel and Richard and I are going to fix some sandwiches and microwavable bowls of soup. I'll continue to update as long as the WIFI doesn't frizz out on me. I'm elated but exhausted...just like every other new mom I know.
