3 days more

Nate spent another 3 days this week in the hospital. We took him in for his normal check up on Monday and the doctor freaked out about his low weight and sent us to the hospital. The low weight is concerning, her reaction was just as concerning. We spent 3 days in the hospital and no one really knew why, including most of the doctors and nurses.

Nate has a deadline. If he cannot show that he can gain weight by the 21 then he will be admitted to the hospital and receive a temporary feeding tube. A few weeks later they will surgically implant a feeding tube directly into his tummy....I mean stomach. I feel like there is a countdown above our heads and it makes enjoying the season a little difficult. If anyone would like to help, feel free to send food. Nate likes mountain dew and doritos.

On the bright side Nate is wonderful. He loves to push himself backwards. Sometimes he disappears and we find that he has pushed himself backwards into the closet or under the bed.

For example; here is Nate pushing himself under the bed. He got so far under he couldn't push back anymore.

He doesn't look sadly underweight to me. He is so adorable! I guess today is the day--did he go back to the hospital? We pray for him every day. Hugs!
