Drainage

I was hoping that by now I would have been told that everything's peachy & we can go home tomorrow but the GI doctor hasn't been in to talk to me yet today. Somebody had a fun idea though. Instead of just draining all of Raya's gastric contents out of her stomach & into a diaper & throwing it all away, her nurse rigged up a contraption that allows us to drain her into a bottle. That way we can get a little more accurate measurement of how much is coming out and then we can also inject some of it back into her J tube to minimize what she loses. They said we only need to put back 15ml (1/2 oz) 4 times a day and the rest of it can be drained into a diaper instead of a bottle. It's totally gross and I'm pretty sure that anyone who sees the little bottle dangling from a tube hooked to her stomach will think it's pee. Now we just have to figure out how to conceal it and keep her from playing with it all the time. :)
Raya had a fun little surprise visit from Daddy at lunchtime today. She was VERY excited to see him and VERY upset when he put her back in her bed so he could leave.
