It’s done! The tube has been changed.
We got there, and Jack and Ella played in the waiting room (Alissa had to go with me to be my photo journalist so I wouldn’t forget how to do it the next time—’cause now I can do it at home by myself. Scary, right???). Then, they called us back and we got his weight and measurements. His head grew a teeny tiny bit and he put on a few ounces. Of course, he hasn’t pooped in a few days, so………
Anyhow, then Dr. R came in and he was like–here you go, I’ll walk you through it. I was thinking that I would get to watch and then do it later or something, but he made me do it. I tried so hard to not shake and to be strong…but inside I was totally freaking out! So I got the old tube out, and we all said “ewwwwww” and he said, “Hurry up and put the new one in!” So I did.
Jack was the hero though. He never cried or even really moved. I think he was a little confused as to why I was doing this.
So then it was all over…and Alissa and I were contemplating throwing up. I am still shaking, and I keep thinking “oh my gosh, I shouldn’t be having to do this to my own kid!” But it saves us $$$ and time. Guess it’s good to have that ol’ license!!!
Thanks for your prayers! Love to all!
