Although she can only work a few days a week, my new day nurse Michelle started today. Mommy spent almost an hour showing Michelle my routine and I must have known what was coming because I was clinging to her. Eventually, Mommy knew she would ahve to make a clean break and that is when the waterworks began. Even from the office, Mommy could hear me sobbing! But it didn't take Michelle long to make friends and when Mommy came to check on m a few hours later I was sitting on the couch next to her getting my nails trimmed. I even went down for my nap without a fight.
I am still having a few coughing fits during the day but with some saline and my HME it hasn't led to any more vomiting. In the afternoon I continued with my extreme eating by trying pureed green beans. Although more ended up on me then in my mouth I decided they were pretty good when just a few weeks ago I wouldn't have even considered them. Tonight my new weekend night nurse Diana started so my parents are hoping for a quiet night for everyone's benefit.
