Just checking in... Very tired and determined to be in bed, asleep, by 10:16.
Jonah did a little better today. He took a little over 22 ounces by bottle, which is a great improvement over the last couple days. Unfortunately, it's still probably not enough. And it's a little easier to get it in him when Matt's here, because when he refuses to eat for one of us, sometimes he'll eat for the other one. He probably ate about two ounces of solids.
We have a GI appointment at 8:30 on Wednesday morning, so I suppose I'll find out more then about our timeline, how many ounces he'd need to be taking, how much weight he'd need to gain etc to NOT have the g-tube. Or maybe they'll schedule surgery. I don't really know what we're going to find out at that appointment.
We were supposed to go to a pumpkin patch today, but since it was rainy and gross for a lot of the day, we didn't get to go. But I am determined to have that memory with Jonah, and tomorrow will be our last chance, so we plan on going tomorrow. Unfortunately that means we won't get to go to church because we'll have to get dressing change done before we go. Bummer. Typically I wouldn't put a pumpkin patch before church, but since we can't really get out during the week, if we're going to go, tomorrow's it.
Okay, I'm off to bed. Thanks for continuing to pray. We have faith that our miracle is coming... exactly what form it will take and when we don't know.
But hey, if God decides to give us an appetizer miracle of Jonah eating and no g-tube followed by a big ol' helping of complete and total healing, we'll sure take it. I won't even ask for dessert.
