Cameron is getting the NJ tube too!

Cameron has been throwing up every feeding and refusing the bottle each time we try. Overnight while on a slow continuous feeding pump Cameron threw up. They are now starting getting everything prepared to have him get the NJ tube like his brother. They are also going to put him on the same formula as his brother, from Similac to Neocate, so that he doesn't have to work so hard to digest it.

We are discussing whether we should just go ahead and do the GJ tubes this week. They will not overcome their feeding aversions in two more weeks fast enough to not need the GJ tubes and we are already here in the hospital. If we do the GJ tubes we will not need to go to Mt. Washington hospital as inpatients and can just do their outpatient program from home. The hospital is 45min from home and only one parent can stay overnight at a time (though for us that might not be an issue since there are two babies) and the inpatient program is only 11 miles from our house.

Cameron just didn't want to be left out of the fun :(
I hope that you guys can get the surgery over with and get out of that place!
