Fun Facts and Cool Happenings!

The fun fact is that when we left the hospital, it was Lindsay's 293rd day. I think it was time to go!!!!!! The cool happenings is that we have been given the opportunity to take Cole to his first MLB game today at Comerica park. The RMH was given box seats tickets to this weekends games against the White Sox (no more no-hitters please!!) and the manager called us to see if we wanted one of the days! Of course!!!!! So, JR, Cole, and myself are headed to Ann Arbor to first drop Lindsay off to one of her favorite nurses to babysit and then on to the game we go! I will have camera in tow to capture this exciting event for Cole.
Lindsay is doing fantastic! She one little hungry monkey lately and gaining weight as she should be with a new ticker! She has been feeding orally and we are using her g-tube mainly for meds. She was showing signs that she was uncomfortable at night with the continuous feeds so I have altered the volume that she gets with every feeding during the day so that she doesn't have to have those continuous feeds at night. Thank goodness because that was a pain! Especially when that darn connector would come out and then you have formula all over the floor and a nice puddle in her bed that she is laying in! grrrr. Although, she managed to sleep right through it! Speaking of sleeping, she has been a rock star at night. She has been sleeping the whole night! The nurses said that she did at the hospital but we were never there to witness it. It is fantastic let me tell ya! The first few nights were rough but now she is getting used to her new, PERMANENT, surroundings and adjusting just fine. I will post more later because I have to run!
Love to you all!

Hi you guys, how exciting for Cole, to be able to go to the game. He will be telling Colby and trev about this for sure. We've missed the boys, it seems weird w/out them. Hope to see you soon, and kiss the princess for us. Enjoy your "family time" tonite.

Wow, that brings back so many memories of Natalie's G-tube feeding days. She got uncomfortable at night too and when that thing came apart it was such a pain to be changing sheets in the middle of the night and it was so stinky! Isn't is fun being in charge of your own child? Do what works for you and she will thrive!!!!! So glad you got to have fun at the ball game.
