NG Tube added Today

Update on Heaven Nicole .... This morning they drew labs and the counts came back all wacky, so (I requested they do a finger prick again) and the Plebotomist came in and had to prick 2 fingers to get enough for labs. When the counts came back they were better. As of right now we are not sure what is going on with the draws from the port but we are figuring that it from where she is getting so many other things through there.
After Heaven woke, she immediately wanted a hot soaking bath, so she did but we didn't stay in there as long this time. We returned to the room for her to have the NG Tube placed, she is on 30ml per hour which is equal to 1 ounce per hour, we started low beings she hasn't eaten since Sunday evening around 4 p.m. or so.
She has been resting well and with the fact that she is now getting nutrients whe will be feeling much better in a couple days. Dr. Fisher told me of a mouthwash that will help numb the pain from the mucasitis, so we will be trying that as soon as she wakes up. 
She also received a package from Sanville Elem. School from the 5th grade class, unsure of how they found out about her, but each of the kids int he class had made Heaven a CHRISTmas card. I thought that was so sweet of them.
Well, that's about it for now, if any of you would like to know more you can text or call me on my cell. Blessing to you all. ♥                                       
And she took it like a pro
