Oliver had his second week of full day kindergarten. He is doing so well!! His ID teacher spoke with his kindergarten class on Tuesday morning. The kids had a lot of questions about Oliver, so she went in to explain things to them. It was very successful and I think Oliver is going to have a much better time among his peers. In fact, this morning while dropping him off at school, a little boy came over to say hello to him and gave him five. I was beaming ear to ear and almost moved to tears. That little boy's parents are getting a thank you note from me.
Waverly was home with me again this week. I think we have settled into a schedule that works for all of us. We met with her surgeon on Wednesday. Everything looks fairly good. She has some granulation tissue near the g-tube. We started using some topical steroids and hopefully that will clear it up. The doctor was also concerned by how "tight" the tube is - it is pressing into her skin. Typically Mic-Key buttons are replaced every 3 months. We think this will be replaced closer to 1 month. Waverly is fussing a lot and I think it is the tube hurting her skin. We have to allow the stoma to heal though before we can replace it. Poor girl has been through so much.
