So off to Children's hospital Frankie and I go with Vinny to go and have a PH probe put up Vin's nose and down into his stomach to measure the acid in his belly (for reflux) for 24 hours....I thought this would be a quick procedure---well I thought wrong! Oh by the way- got all the way up to the dr's office and thought I forgot my cell phone in the car---so all the way back down we went to the car---once I got to my car and reached into my pocket for the keys to unlock the door-----there was my cell phone---in my pocket....got to the office and went to give them my insurance card----oooh---wallet in the car----no way was I going back down! Got to the room and the RN put the tube up his nose (had a hard time---cry cry cry)---my little man was breaking my heart....she then sent us down stairs for an x-ray to verify that the tube was where it was supposed to be----nope----didn't even show up in the x-ray---so that damned loooong tube was up in his head somewhere---poor baby---oh ya I couldn't even go with Vinners for the x-ray cuz I had Frankie with me---so back up to the GI clinic we go....I was about to lose it by this time...I think the staff knew I was about to break, so they offered to watch Frank so I would be able to go back down for the second x-ray with Vinners....so we got the tube in the right spot and off we went.So now my poor baby has two tubes---one in each nostril---beautiful! Thankfully he doesn't seem to mind. We only have to have it for 24 hours.
My whole day wasn't like this....I did manage a few laughs...like when I went into the family room and saw Frankie singing "happy birthday" to Salli with a blue bucket over his head. She seems thrilled doesn't she?
This guy was all over the place this afternoon...getting into everything that he shouldn't...
As I sit here and write this...I guess the past week really hasn't been to bad....it could always be worse....but I am glad that the day is over and am excited to go to bed and start a fresh new day tomorrow!!! Let's hope tomorrow is smooth sailing and full of smiles and laughter!!
