Good Night :)
Charlie had a good night. He settled down after his 4 hour feeding around 12:30 or 1:00 then we both went to bed. He only woke up one time from 1:00 am until now. Hurray! So that further confirms the theory that the food is what is making him uncomfortable because he didn't have a feeding from 12:00 until now. He does need to get used to the sensation of having something in his stomach so we will continue to work through this. The dotor said things are going really well and she believes he is stable enough to proceed with the G-tube placement where they will insert a short tube a few inches from his belly button through the skin and into the stomach. After the surgery he will be fed through a little "button" on his belly that we will open and insert the food when needed. The surgeon will come by later to discuss specifics and when he can be scheduled.
