This afternoon, I got a call from the nurse practitioner that Gwyneth has been feeding completely from the bottle all day and that the feeding tube has been removed! A small surgery (that we have known was needed for several weeks) has been scheduled for Gwyneth tomorrow morning, and she could be discharged as early as the first of next week!!!
We are very excited and a little stressed. We're ready to have Gwyneth home, but we have a lot to do to really get ready. We'll be talking with somebody tonight at the hospital to find out what exactly we need to do/get.
Please, pray with us that the surgery will go well tomorrow and that Gwyneth will continue to feed completely from the bottle over the next several days so that she will be discharged sometime next week.
Also pray that Tricia will feel prepared physically and emotionally...she's still regaining her strength and will certainly not be able to do everything that she'll want to do as she continues to rehab from the past several months.
And, pray that our weekend will give us enough time and energy to prepare for Gwyneth!
