Wacky Weather

. Can't beat the wierd and wonderful Manitoba weather. A fresh blanket of snow yesterday, and now today, a beautiful 14C evening. Noah absolutely loves being outdoors as much as possible, and spends much of his day banging at the patio door until we finally take him out!

Noah is doing well and seems to have beaten this cold on his own. Thankfully we managed to avoid another hospital visit. It's gone through the household though, and it's really taken me out over the past few days. He is completely off his basics again and just on lipids at night, plus his continuous tube feed at 31cc/hr. We are also trying out a new ambulatory Prism pump to run his D5W during the day... so far so good, although it is heavier for Noah to drag around. Still doing IV antibiotics every 6 hours for another 3 weeks, which is exhausting in itself.

Not really any weight gain (still around 16 1/2 lbs) with so many ups and downs over the past few months, but he is growing... or else the truck is shrinking...

WOW! Noah, you're becoming such a big boy! I went back and looked at a picture of Noah in the truck (June 2006)--how he's grown!!

Glad Noah is home and the weather is nice today.
