Sunday night:

It's Sunday night. Michael is doing much better. He developed an infection last week around his G Tube site, along with some "crackling" sounds in his lungs. In general, he had a crappy week (or, more truthfully, he made our week crappy). His eating declined, his puking increased, and we were all grumpy. But now, after a few days of antibiotics, things are looking up. He is showing signs of appetite, his belly looks much better, and puking has decreased. He still isn't back up to eating what he was before he got sick, but we'll get there. Sick kids are always fun.

Nursing scheduling does not look good for this coming week, our last week of approved nursing care (unless we get another extension). We have no night nurses all week, except maybe one on Monday and Friday, but that is doubtful. As far as day shift goes, we only have coverage through Wednesday, and then nothing until Sunday. It is going to be a long, long week. Hopefully something will come through.

In all, Michael is doing well -- much better now then last week. He is smiling, happy boy again, and that is a very good thing.
