Busy Morning


It's Paige again. Charlie had a good night. He woke up at 4 this morning and had a little storm. He got his regular clondine and went back to sleep. His doctor came by at 8:30 this morning and ordered his NJ-tube get turned into an NG tube, which for all you non medical people, involved pulling the tube out a couple of inches so it is now in the stomach rather than the intestines. The nurse had to get a x-ray to make sure she got it in the right place. They also decided to adjust the settings of his shunt so that the ventricles will drain a little more then he will will get a CT scan tomorrow to see if it worked. They took an xray to verify that it was right as well. Grandma Cheryl has been here most of the morning and has been loving being with the little boy. Charlie didn't like the x-ray room but he seemed to calm down after he made it back to his room. Angel and Rob showed up to see and Meghan is here as well. It is quite a party. Here are some pictures of our morning adventures.

You have all had a busy morning!!! I am glad Charlie slept so well last night. I hope that all of the trauma of today will not cause him to have a rough night. Hopefully, he will sleep peacefully. Congratulations on moving into your new house. I am sure there is a LOT of positive energy and love filling your home from all of the love that went into completing it!
