Today Teagan is one month old. Wow a lot has happened in his first month of life; being born, open heart surgery, chest closed, chest re-opened, and so much more. My mom has to give a talk on President Hinkley's talk about taking the stairs. We know Teagan choose to take the stairs in life, as his mother I'm sure I questioned that decision, but at the same time I know I said I would help him because I knew what it would mean for our family. The stairwell here at PCMC has a sign that says, "taking the stairs will add years to your life and life to your years". That is my prayer for Teag. We are thankful for small milestones like today, Teagan's life will always be about quality not quantity. But I guess none of us know how long we will be here and we all should live that way. Happy Birthday Teagan, we love you!
Today was more of the same: oxygen, feeding, gaging, and learning how to take care of Teagan at home. I placed his NG tube (feeding tube), I could not believe I did it. Still working on bottle feeds. The Nurse Practitioner told me most likely we would go home Monday, on oxygen and a NG tube. Time will tell.
