Please please please don't get sick!

So this past week Ben has been sick with a runny nose and a slight croupy cough.....ugh just like the week before Nick had his last surgery, then ended up having RSV and seizures. We are trying to keep him away as much as possible but that's pretty IMpossible. I think Nick has a runny nose though. It's hard to tell with him because there's no palate to guide the snot down and out his nose, it just drains into his mouth and down his throat. He's been very gaggy this past week and has thrown up a couple times, twice he's thrown up his tube at the same time. But this morning immediately after he ate he threw up quite a bit of bright yellow stuff. It scared me quite a bit, only because he had just eaten. I ended up calling the nurse line and they said he should probably be seen, just in case. So we took him to the Children's ER and he was fine, thankfully. The doctors think maybe he had a stomach bug or the drainage is making his stomach upset. But the yellow stuff was just stomach acid and it's not a big deal that he threw it up after he ate. Thankfully, he's completely fine and we are still scheduled to have his g-tube put in on Thursday. Hopefully we can make it to then without getting sick.
Please pray he doesn't get sick and that the surgery will go well and we will be home in plenty of time for Easter!
Here's some CHUBBY pictures!!
