Special Delivery...


We had a special delivery of the supplies we now need for Tim's tube feedings. It's all a little overwhelming but I think we are getting the hang of it. This is only a two week supply. The next time they deliver it will be a month's supply of Ensure, syringes, and bags. They even delivered an IV pole so that we can hang the bags -- they thought of everything!










Everything we need has to be kept close at hand so our ironing board has become a make-shift table......
Tim calls his Ensure his "Enfamil" :) We laugh that we feed him like a baby (every few hours) and he's sleeping like a baby -- he doesn't sleep through the night!

It is amazing. I remember having that first baby and all the stuff that tiny baby needed. You were packing like you were moving just to take a trip to the park or grandma's. Kind of looks like that for Tim now! PS~great minds thinking alike again, your background matches my "old" blog background that I just changed! ha ha ha

I haven't read blogs for a few days. You definitely need a lot of supplies but it is essential he stay strong and get the nutrients he needs. Wish we lived closer together so I could "help" somehow. However, you can always call if you need anything whatsoever! Hugs!
