We had some more button excitement today. When it got pulled out yesterday, it must have put stress on the balloon because the balloon popped today and the button fell out. Mommy was taking a nap at the time, but Daddy is a pro and put the back up button in really fast.
My diaper rash is looking a little better. It's hard to tell if it is the butt paste, the Lotrimin or the fact that I haven't had a stinky in a few days but regardless of why my parents and I are very happy. I have an appointment with my GI tomorrow so Mommy will see if they can give me a prescription for something a little stronger to take care of it for good.
Since I have been doing so well with my extra volume of formula, Mommy is hoping for a good weigh in tomorrow at the appointment. We will finally get a weight without the cast and know for sure how I am doing.
As of yesterday I am no longer wearing my splint and you can see in the picture above I am using my hand more and more each day. I am trying to fit my feeding bag into my shape sorter. Surprise, it fits!
During my trach change tonight, my Mommy let me help her pull out my old trach so Daddy could put my new trach in. My parents tried to explain that I can only take out my trach when my parents are there and have told me it is okay. After my new trach was in, my parents let me play with my old trach for a little while. I showed my parents where it goes on me and then I showed Mommy wear her trach would be if she had one. I am a very smart little girl!
