Miserable

This is awful. They inserted the probe about 2 hours ago and Olivia has not cried for about 10 minutes of that 2 hours. She's miserable. She handled the procedure itself fairly well. You can tell she can feel the probe in there. Every time she swallows, she screams. She's gagging like crazy, which I am diligently recording in her little diary. This has to be in for 16-24 hours. Will we survive?
Oh, and the x-ray showed that the tube may be to high and they'll need to push it down. They were supposed to let the nurses know what to do about it. An hour ago. These last two hours may not even count! Ugh...

Oh no, no, no! That has got to be awful to sit and watch little Livey like that! I'm so sorry! Praying things get better!

I will pray that Olivia is able to settle down and get more comfortable, and strength for you to do/sit and watch one of the awful things parents sometimes have to do!
