Grandma and Aunt Wendy called this evening, and we had a video chat with The Boy. He is now doing better. His temperature is down and he was playing and having a good time. Still not eating much but at least he has been drinking some.

I have been sending little bottles of milk to him and sometimes he drinks it. Maybe it will help him feel better. And if he will drink it, I'll keep sending it. If Tiny Guy happens to feed on only one side, then I pump out the other. Figuring that plenty of kids who are The Boy's age are still nursing, and considering that we're humans, a bit of human milk for a human kid works well. Also remembering that adult human cancer patients will often look for human milk.

Just wanted to let that be known, that The Boy is doing better. It's hard, though, because things get difficult in a hurry.

Anyone free tomorrow? Go visit Musical Daddy and The Boy at the hospital.

I had no idea that adult cancer patients looked for human milk! Wow, you learn something new every day.

I am SO glad that The Boy is feeling better!

That's a great idea with your extra milk. I would definitely do the same thing. I've actually given a little bit to my little man that is David's age when I've had a little extra. He just drinks it from a cup. I hope he keeps feeling better and better.
