Taking a break 4:25pm April 29th

So this afternoon Cassie and I were just getting too stressed at the hospital so we decided to take a little break and go see a movie.  We ended up seeing the new American Pie movie American Reunion.  The movie was really funny, and it was a relief to do something normal for a change.  Now we are back at the hospital and while we were gone Brittany gave Owen a bath and took him for a long stroller ride.  He stayed awake the whole time we were gone, so now he is pretty tuckered out and is sleeping.  Owen has still been pretty poky with his feeds not even taking in 45ml a feed, so we are kind of worried that he won't even reach his maintenance goal today.  Cassie and I have been toying with the idea of asking the doctors about putting in a G-tube which actually goes right into the stomach through the abdominal wall.  We don't really want him to have a G-tube, but then we won't have to be stressing out that Owen isn't getting an adequate volume of milk.  We will have to wait until morning rounds to discuss it with his team of doctors, but we are pretty sure that we are going to ask them to just go ahead and put the G-tube in.
