GOING HOME TOMORROW!

Witt is ready to go home and all of us are ready for him to come home too! Tomorrow the nurses will train Melanie on putting the feeding tube back in if it should come out. They will also replace the current tube with one that lasts 30 days. Tomorrow the nutritionist will also come and show Melanie how to mix the powder with breast milk to fortify it. This has been an incredible two weeks of ups, downs and unknowns! I am grateful that it was discovered that Witt was aspirating. Feeding with a tube is not any one's first choice but in the long run Witt will be much healthier. He has also been seen by physical therapists and occupational therapists which will continue as an outpatient. God has revealed His faithfulness over and over again through Witt's stay in the hospital. He has shown Himself as our Strength...the very Air We Breathe!!!!
Happy to be going home tomorrow!
