Shift Change :)

Things are pretty quite in the waiting room while we wait for the nursing staff to change. We are not allowed to visit his room between 7 - 8 in the morning and 7-8 at night. We are hanging out in the waiting room eating all of the great treats people have brought.

Charlie pooped for the first time since Saturday. Well actually he pooped three times with a blow-out. This may be TMI (too much information) for some so I apologize. He started recieving food through his feeding tube yesterday and his bowels seem to be handling it fine. The nurse said there are two groups of people that get excited over this "New mothers and grandmas". Grandma Cheryl was quite excited. Rob was far more concerned about the lack of moving excrement than the rest of us. I think he gets his bowel worry from his Grandma Marion. The idea of faulty elimination worries them both greatly.

Hey guys...I heard about your sweet little guy and have been thinking of you. I have to say I can see a big improvement over the week especially in his eyes. He definately has a lot of fight in him, and I know he will keep going.
Much love, lots of prayers and faith...Jen Grimm McFarland

Moms first thing she told me about on the phone was his poop I dont get it but I think any time you can poop and have a stranger clean it up I would be happy about it to.
