We're going to be using a cream on some skin that's growing next to his g-tube entry. They gave us the option to "burn" it off at the office today, or use this cream over the next two weeks. Apparently it's very common, but the body wants to close the hole up, so skin is starting to grow. Hopefully this cream works, so we don't have to cause Jax any discomfort with "burning" it off.
Jaxon's weigh-in at the office was awesome - 10lbs, 4oz! We'll see what he weighs tomorrow on the scale he's been using this whole time, and hopefully it's very close to the doctor's scale. The doctor said that Jax is in the 50% for his weight in comparison to his length. Ignoring all "ages", he only was concerned about his weight in reference to his length. So that's great! Both boys will be weighed at the house by our nurse (Stacey) for their RSV shots tomorrow. I think they're within a pound of eachother now because Jax is fitting into Brady's pajamas :)
We have the okay from the specialist and the dietician to work on bottle feeds again. We just have to make sure a certain amount of formula is administered every day, so we will work with his speech therapist on how to time turning off the feeding pump long enough to make Jax hungry to try a bottle, then making sure he makes up for that time off the pump. It will take a lot of work, but the day this baby gets his feeding tube out, will be the biggest celebration ever. The doctor still 100% believes Jax will grow out of this heaving and he'll be completely fine someday with eating by mouth. He said the more mature and upright Jax gets, the easier everything will be for him. We REALLY hope he's right.
