That's exactly what Evan is; SPOILED! I swear it will take me 2 hours to post this update with one hand. Why am I only using one hand? Cause Evan has been laying in my other arm all day long! But trust me, I am NOT complaining, my poor guy has been thru so much, he can do whatever he wants :)

Tomorrow Evan will be getting his g-tube put in. It's only a 30 minute surgery, but I'm still worried. He will need to be put under anesthesia and be intubated for the surgery.. The Drs keep reassuring us that its a very common surgery and "not a big deal", but I will still be praying every second he's in surgery. The game plan now is for Evan to resume eating Thursday thru his gtube, and if (when) he does well, we will be discharged to go home FRIDAY! Oh I can't wait to get him home!! Scott & I were under the impression we would need to use a pump to feed Evan but the DRs today told us we will just be attaching a syringe and pouring milk in slowly. It will be more time consuming but atleast I will still feel like I'm performing "mom duties" by holding him and feeding him! Friday morning Evan will get his RSV vaccine and do his carseat test (make sure he doesnt de-sat in his carseat) and then we will be good to go. This morning the Dr was talking about Evan and was so amazed that Evan was going to be discharged just 30 days from birth. What an AWESOME God we serve!!

Has any other wife been suffering as much as I have been this season with the whole fantasy football thing? lol And of course Scott had to make it to the playoffs.. WOOHOO the last game is on right now! Kidding babe, feel free to spend your prize money on me ;)

Also I just have to add that these nurses in the CVICU are amazing. Our nurse today came into our room crying, practically sobbing, and I'm pretty sure it was because of her other patient. This little girl literally screams all day long! She's usually screaming "water". I'm pretty sure she gives everyone a run for their money. I go crazy just hearing her from down the hall, I can't imagine what it must be like to be IN the room.

I will be sure to update tomorrow after Evan gets his gtube in. Please pray for him <3


  1. Will be praying for you and Evan. I look back at the time that my daughter had a g-tube and am so glad that we opted for it instead of staying with the NG. She only used it for about 6 weeks and then was totaly bottle fed, but during those 6 weeks it came in handy. She had it in about a year and a half and then it was removed. I did use it one time when she had a bad stomach bug to help hydrate her. And the best thing-beautiful tube-free pictures! I hope that tomorrow you'll be done before you know it.
    PS-Don't let them forget to give some pain meds to Evan afterwards.

  2. Praying for a smooth surgery today and a swift recovery so your family can get home!!

  3. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for an easy surgery and fast recovery...then HOME!
