Morning rounds 10:48am April 30th

Rounds again.  So yesterday Owen didn't manage to make maintenance.  They are most likely going to be putting the NG tube back in later today to make sure that he gets adequate volume and nutrition.  We brought up getting the G-tube put in with the team.  They are going to be discussing the option later with some of the more senior doctors and then he will need a consult from general surgery and he will need an upper GI before they can even consider putting in the G-tube.  Speech is going to feed him now to see if there are any other things that can be done to coax him into taking larger volumes from the bottle.  So it looks like we are going to be here a few more days, hopefully it doesn't take too long to before they can put in the G-tube.  We are really getting tired of being in the hospital.
