Maybe... maybe....

We are hoping to be discharged today! Since James is doing so well as far as no fevers or vomiting and the diarrhea is probably not going away for quite some time... there's no reason to hang out here! The g-tube is a long Mic-Key (not a button) and is still leaking, but they really don't have a lot of other ideas for that either.

The plan from here is that we should be discharged late afternoon/early evening (though the nurse just said she got our discharge orders and thought it was for now??). For feeding we'll do 3 oz every hour 10 hours/day. Any leakage we're supposed to try to 'replace' with an extra feeding between feeds or at the end of the day. And to use the gtube to use water to keep him hydrated because of the excessive diarrhea.

Here's hoping!
