Jonathan's NG-tube...is OUT!

Our thrill for the day, because we feel the need to always have something going on was, Jonathan's NG-tube came out. This wasn't at the doctor's office but at home...UGH!!! Amanda was helping him take off his PJ top and put his shirt on. Well, at night we tape the tube to his shirt near his shoulder, it seems to help keep it in place. Amanda didn't see it was still taped down and when she pulled his shirt off it pulled on the tube. Out it came and the tape even came right off his face at the same time...crazy! I called his GI to see if I needed to bring him right in, they said "no". Jonathan has an appointment on Tuesday and they said we could wait til then. We had to get his weight today and on Tuesday before we go back in, this way they can see what he has done even if it's from our scales. We weigh him on packaging scales and they are very accurate. I think after the initial shock Jonathan felt like he was FREE at last!!! Or at least til next Tuesday, when he'll be mad at me again. I'm the bad guy who takes him to all these places to be poked on. Thankful Jonathan can have a few days break, and that he has a great GI doctor. Most importantly that the Master Physician is watching over Jonathan!
