Tube out, button in

Tomorrow morning I'll pack up little Nebraska Larae and we'll head to St. Louis Children's. She has her "switch" procedure at noon, at least that's what I call it. They'll take the Corpak out and put in a Nutriport. The good part is that there will be no more tube on the outside, nothing for her to grab and tug on whenever she gets the chance. This morning she got it the best yet, and I thought she was going to pop it out. I just knew we'd made it all this way and the morning before it's switched, she'd get it out of there and we'd be headed to the ER. But she was caught in the act and all was saved.

Pray for safe travel, successful procedure, no complications, and that Mommy and baby don't go crazy in the car for 3 hours down and then back again. Aw, darn! Just remembered that I forgot to pick up a couple books on CD for the drive. Grrrrrrrr

Have a good one...


  1. We're praying for you! Come back to Illinois soon! Maybe we can get together for lunch.

  2. Yikes! Good luck. I'll be thinking of you guys.

  3. Good Luck!! We are headed to our childrens hospital tomorrow too. Rhett is having his first appointment with the Neurologist.

    It takes us about an hour and a half to drive up there.

    We will be thinking of you!!!

  4. Thanks everyone...we're logging off for the day and off we go. Woo hoo!

  5. Hope the procedure is going well and the trip is not too grueling. Good save on catching little B. Thinking of you!
