What a rough time for you and your family, SD. :(
You must be so exhausted. I wish I could be there to help advocate for you and your child. You know...stomp up and down through the hospital offices, looking for answers, hollering quietly at administrators and doctors, phoning specialists, annoying anyone in charge, and generally being the squeakiest wheel in that half of the country?
Poor boy. Hope you can get some food into him soon.

starrydreamer - I am so sorry. I have placed a message under one of our electric window candles asking for a complete recovery of your precious child. It's a good system - I have a high success rate.

I really appreciate it, everyone.

We finally got the doc in the room last night to come up with an alternative so my kid can get some calories in him. Their solution is to fit him with a temporary GJ tube so they can feed formula into his intestines. They want to keep his stomach empty in case they need to intubate him - which is what I suspected. He's had a J tube before and it generally sucks but they promised it would be removed before he left the hospital.

But man, it's a really eerie thing when your 3 yr old looks at you like he doesn't know you and doesn't respond to anyone. I'd never seen him like that before. And now of course I have to work. My husband is with him and reports that Ian was watching a movie, saw a character with an inhaler, and indicated that he has an inhaler too. So he's coming back from wherever he was.

Enough about me and my woes!! Tell me your happy Christmas stories! And happy New Year to everyone.
