small steps

Well today they finally got what I was trying to ask about breastmilk. It only took a few times of fighiting with the drs to make it click. I guess if i had used to correct terms theyw ould have gotten it better. I was asking for them to let me give Ethan 10ccs of breastmilk 2 times a day. As of right now we do that with formula and he does not really drink it, he will take about 2cc. The Drs were thinking I was asking them to start changing her formula to breastmilk. Yeah later in time I want to do that, Well I want to breastfeed him not feed him threw his gtube. But one step at a time. So today the dr came in and said Ok so i understnad now what you were trying to ask, yeah thats fine we can do oral stim with breastmilk. I was like ok thanks. But was it really hard for them to figure it out. So i guess i just need to sue medical terms when I ask for things. lol.
So They are talkign about discharge alot now, but in the same few minutes that we say soon they also tell us, oh we would like to keep him all winter if we could.
I guess once he gets home we wont have to mess with these drs anymore, it will be all differnt drs, whihc we have not met yet. We are going to tour the new hospital on tuesday. We have met Ethans CF dr and he is really nice.
So there is my update here is a picture for the day.
