I mentioned on facebook last night that Nolan might get to go home today, and that operation Homeward Bound is officially on. I was half right.
Nolan is here one more day, but we ARE in the final stretch.
After working a couple of days, I am back at the hospital, and hopefully leaving in the near future with two babies.
Nolan is doing great, keeping down formula, and going home tomorrow. I practiced putting his NG tube in. He barely coughed and smiled at me afterward. It was the best job at putting in an NG that I’ve ever done.
Landon is doing much better! He is keeping down pedialyte, (12 ounces so far today and starting a slow 6 more now). I also practiced putting his NG tube in. He coughed, gagged, and fought the whole time. It was the worst job at putting in an NG that I’ve ever done.
So…soon! Soon we will all be home! I still have a lot of questions. When can we start trying milk with Landon? How long do we give them to get back to eating by mouth before we have to consider a more permanent option? What will we do if Nolan outweighs Landon?
I’ll let you know when I learn more!
