Ode to Evelyn and last NG tube change (here's hoping)!

Well, the time has come to say good bye to dear Evelyn. Her help has been vital. Her attitude, a blessing. Her love for Noah leaves me without words. We sincerely thank her for all she has done. Don't be a stranger Evelyn - we'd love to see you soon!

We changed Noah's NG tube for (hopefully) the last time. If it stays in, we'll be good until Monday's admission to hospital. I've posted a few pictures to say farewell to the NG tube (if you look carefully in a few of the photos, you'll see some of a "NG Tube Free Noah"). I snapped a few while we were waiting for Jared to come home and complete the insertion. I pulled the tube early so Noah could mess around with food and have a swimming bath!

I'll attempt to blog updates regularly during our hospital stay, so please check in from time to time if you would like to see his progress.

It is a busy weekend for us. My dad (Grandpa V.) is visiting, and we are attending a memorial service for my dad's brother Jack who passed away earlier this year. I'm happy to be busy and have less time to think about Monday/Tuesday.

Wishing all our readers a super weekend!


  1. From Dar:

    The reason I have a picture of Noah with a soo-soo, is that was the first time he held it in his mouth - he was chewing in true Noah style but it worked!

  2. Hope all goes well with his surgery next week! Glad to hear he's willing to have the soo-soo! May he continue to be willing to put things in his mouth. I hope for your sakes and his that all goes well with the surgery and that it will help reduce his GERD.

  3. Thinking of you and looking forward to good news.
