Today Nathan was doing great. It was Teddy Bear Day in the cafeteria so I brought in his stuffed Mickey Mouse so he could go. As soon as I got into his room he signed "Mickey Mouse" and had a huge smile on his face. Then I handed it to him and he put Mickey on his head and giggled. Then he put Mickey on Daddy's head and laughed and covered his mouth while he did it. I haven't seen him like this in a long time, it was nice to see how happy he was.
Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Katherine all came and we went down to the cafeteria. Nathan was overwhelmed with all the people there and we didn't stay long. We then took him outside, we weren't really prepared for the cold weather, and looked at the ambulance and helicopter. We showed Nathan where he was when he was in them and he liked them. He told us he was a little baby when he was in the helicopter, he remembers everything we tell him.
Then Grame came with Trevor. He actually liked seeing Trevor today, I think. Trevor loved Nathan's nurse today and put his arms out for him as soon as he saw him. The nice thing about being in peds is they all love kids so his nurse was more than happy to hold Trevor for a while. Then Trevor decided he was hungry and demanded food. Aunt Katherine fed him his dinner, he loves food.
All in all it was a pretty good day. Not much happened medically speaking. I want to stay until at least monday when I can talk to a nutritionist, I want to talk to them about his diet and see if we can rework so he gets all his calories during the day. He used to get Boost at night just for the calories and the new formula he is going to be on is going to be pretty expensive so i want to see if we can avoid it. Tonight is Daddy's night to sleep at home since he has to stay the next two nights, Mommy has to work 16 hours on Monday so won't be able to be here.
Nathan has learned how to operate his bed so he is now laying in bed laughing as he moves his bed. Up down, up down, up down - he's having a great time. It's nice to see him finally having a good time. Hopefully the milk protein allergy really is his problem and he is on the road to recovery.
