Wow - we are tube free!
I didn't anticipate that yesterday the surgeon would take the tube out at our appointment. I didn't expect it to be that easy of a process - it never seems simple when it comes to Isaac. But wow - it was simple and now its supposed to heal on its own. If I'd known that all I had to do was pop out the tube and seriously leave the flipping tube out - I would have done it a month ago in the comfort of my own home. :) But wow - its out - and although he's leaking like a sieve with every bite we feed the poor fellow - it will heal. She told us that the inside will heal sooner - and the outside should be completely healed by 3 months. So Johnson & Johnson has their last hoorah at my house. Unless we go through the 50 pounds of gauze I bought last night over the upcoming weekend. :) Which after last night seems very possible.
