Poop For your Birthday

Normally this does not sound like a good birthday present, but for Gib...It was perfect.

He said that Ellie woke up this morning, farted and pooped. YAHOO! This means the NG tube in her nose can come out and she can start taking little bits of clears by mouth. This will is a huge step in the healing process. Sounds like a great present to me.

Happy Birthday Gib!!!

Yippee! I know how important that first poop is after any surgery - happy birthday. I was happy to read about your pain management strategies. I'm hoping Molly will be able to have an epidural after her next surgery. Thanks for the medication pointers :) Sarah Kimball (Freeport)
