Doing his civic duty

Maybe should be spelled differently...but we finally got some poo from The Boy! Hopefully it's enough and The Boy can start nursing tomorrow and eating tomorrow evening.

Currently, he is on IV nutrition. It feels like that's a step backwards, because were he able to nurse or eat, obviously there would be no need for it. It's just that he hasn't had anything to eat since Monday morning and hasn't had any liquids to drink since Tuesday morning, and we certainly don't want him losing weight. I'm glad, by the way, that during his previous chemo-related illnesses and hospital stays, he hasn't lost weight.

I'm a little scared, on his behalf, that stopping the NG tube and suction will cause him to puke more green stuff. That was probably one of the more disgusting things we've seen.
