Then last night Scott and I attended the G-tube class down at Primary Children's. We learned a TON and now feel ready for this next step. We also learned that we were not feeding Josh correctly and probably have caused him more tummy aches. Alas... the ER didn't show us anything, we just 'winged' it by ourselves. So after a wonderful nurse that spent two hours teaching Scott and I about feedings... I decided to come home and wheel out the pump and attempt to figure it out. You see when the Healthcare Company delivered it two months ago... I got a fast run-through on the machine and was left with a big instruction booklet. The problem was that it included every language BUT english. So after a bit of trial and error last night, I finally figured it out. So this morning I gave it it a whirl. It took a few minutes to get the formula made and the pump all primed, but then it was good to go. Josh was happy in the high chair, and I was able to do other things for those 25 minutes.
So now I amwondering why I wasn't doing this all along (um.. maybe cuz NOBODY told us the correct way to feed???) since I can just hook him up and away I go. I am in pure heaven!!!
