A good night . . .

Parker had a good night. His need for bolus meds (a quick, heavier dose on top of the constant IV drip) a couple of times overnight. Ian and I went to the hotel for the night to get a good night’s sleep. Today will hopefully be uneventful. He will be getting a central line put in so that he doesn’t have to take his meds via a traditional IV.

They’ve placed an NJ feeding tube. Last night we were told he would be on TPN fluids via IV until he is extubated. We aren’t sure why the change but we will ask when they come by for rounds. The ENT last night told us they don’t like to blindly pass a feeding tube in because of the location of the surgery so we are hoping that this wasn’t a mistake . . .

I will try to post some pictures later today.

    You guys are in my thoughts !
    Let me know if there is anything I can do for your other guys and their grandparents – I’m just a mile down the street if they need anything.

    Grandma sent me the website yesterday. I’m glad to read that things are going about as planned. I am sure Parker is tough enough to get through this. It sounds like you and Ian are, too.
