Little victories

We took James down to the garden and enjoyed lunch in the fresh air and shade. It wasn't quite as quiet as yesterday (there is construction nearby on a new wing of Children's hospital). I'll try to post a few pictures later.

After a little rest, James had a small victory. In the hospital world we have to quantify things so there is a smear, small, medium, large and extra large. Of course, most are relative to the size of the patient. James' was smear. But it is a clear indicator that there isn't any complete blockage prevent the passing of things, so we are now clear to proceed with yogurt and milk through his g-tube. He got his first feeding of 10 cc s (about 2 teaspoons) and will continue to get 10 cc s each hour until he either doesn't tolerate it or he does fine for about 8 hours and we bump his feed up. I'm not sure to how much just yet.

So please pray with us:

1. that James will have more victories--preferably larger than smears :*).
2. that James will tolerate his yogurt boluses and we will be able to continue on.

Love, Stephanie
