He will be one hungry boy until his feeding tube is put in tomorrow morning. Stephen and I will get lessons on how to feed him using the pump at home. I am terrified. This will be an NJ tube that bypasses his stomach and throat completely so there will be no chance of reflux, vomiting, or aspirating. At this point we don't know how long he'll have it.
We'll have a swallow test one day soon, ojala. If he passes the swallow test they'll do a GI test for reflux.
I'm trying to just think about where we are right now, but I'm very upset about the feeding tube and the idea of not getting to feed him again. Hopefully, the teaching session tomorrow will help dispel fears.
Pray for rest and peace. None of us slept last night.
