Day 7 - Our last day!

We are sitting patiently waiting for the word that we'll be discharged. At this point, we are more than ready to go home!

Oliver has been doing very well with his tube-feeding. He was on 30 ml per hour for 24 hours straight and didn't have any issues. This morning he had a "bolus" feed which is a fancy way to say he had 6 oz (180 ml) over a few minutes rather than hours. He sat quietly while we gave it to him and he is still comfortable. The nurse just told us that we'll do another bolus around 3 and, if it goes well, we'll be discharged.

Here's Ollie sitting up comfortably and actually giving some smiles this morning for the first time since surgery.
