Not much change, other than the boy is picking up a few new names:
- Drama King (“King” for short)
- Spoiled Rotten
I think they’re trying to tell us that he really likes to be held, and he’s not afraid to voice his opinion on the topic. Other than that, he’s doing pretty well. Looks like we’ll be there for a while yet, probably another couple of weeks. While we’re disappointed in the duration, the reasoning behind it makes it a little easier to digest. They want to work on getting him off of the NG tube and feeding only from the bottle – which we’re all in favor of. So that’s our next big hurdle to clear, so we’re working whatever they tell us to work on that may help in that regard.
Cathy’s taking the stroller with her tomorrow (at the suggestion of the staff), so it looks like mom and the boy will get a little bit of outside time – which will be a nice treat for both of them.
