We moved again, again

Today was a busy day for the Jacksons. Bright and early in the morning, I reported to the NICU for my first trach change. Dave, Noah's Respiration Therapist, walked me through the process and stood by as I quickly pulled out the old trach and slid the new one in. It was not as scary as I had anticipated, but we'll see how confident I am when I am changing it by myself. Next week, I will teach Kc how to change the trach (with Dave standing by). It's just like changing a tire —watch one, do one, teach one.

After Dave left, Sandy came to work with Noah on bottle feeding. He drank another 27 ml from the bottle. He is now going to be bottle fed twice a shift in the hopes that "practice makes perfect". Noah's Upper GI test results came back normal. He has acid reflux that is being treated with medication, but there are no problems with his esophagus or stomach. Thank goodness!

Right after lunch, we found out that Noah was being moved into a private room. He is now in Endeavour 12 which has two comfy chairs and its own bathroom. We are even permitted to spend the night with the little man. He is now even closer to going home. Nana, Grandma Jackson and Uncle Scott all came to check out Noah's new digs.
