The big orange machine

Today we waited around for the suction machine to arrive. The delivery tech came to the front door with a large bag.

I said, "Wow, I cannot believe the machine fits in that bag."

He said, "Oh no, it's not in here. I could not bring it to the front door, it would be easier to bring it through the garage."

I opened the garage door and gasped. It is huge. I am not sure what I expecting but this thing is huge and extremely heavy. We are used to his feeding pump and now we have this machine. I think it needs a name.

Owen's feeding pump is Beatrice.

Wow! I don't know about you, but our apartment is already full of stuff for Emily. We have her feeding pump, her Tumble Forms seat and tray, a bath chair, a giant exercise ball and lots of switch adapted toys. That is in addition to the usual stuff like crib, changing station, etc. I cannot imagine finding space for one more thing that is so huge! (Of course, I do live in an apartment the size of a shoebox.)

Hope things are going well as you adjust to using it. And I hope that Brayden is feeling well.

Whoa. That really is huge. I hope it continues to help and brings Brayden some comfort.

OH my goodness!!!! Gavin is on Gastric suction but before he had his bowel removed he was on both G and J suction. Our suction is like a quarter of that size!

Hey whatever insurance covers I guess we all accept with open arms!!

Thanks for checking in on my little guy :)
