Jax takes drama wherever he goes.

Sorry I don't have any pics yet. I need to find my cord for my camera. Jax has decided to add a little drama already. On the way down I noticed that his g-tube was leaking all through his clothes again. I checked it and the balloon was deflated. I'm in a gas station bathroom with my emergency kit. Yah, fun.
So I took it out and reinflated the balloon and I didn't see a hole in it so I put it back in him and retaped it. A few hours later it was coming out again. Thats when I realized what the one thing I forgot was. My spare button. So I had to use the foley catheter again. Oh its horrible. Its like primative, there's no med port and no clamp. You have to stick this plug in to keep it closed.

So in legoland today I had napkins under his shirt because this cathether was leaking to. The first aid guy there gave us directions to the childrens hospital. I was hoping that I could go to their ER and just get a new button. I really didn't want to sit in an ER forever. But they were great. They put us in a room and ordered a new button. So my brief interaction at Radys childrens hospital in San Diego was pretty good. i was out in half an hour.
So anyway, today we went to Legoland. It was ok. The boys loved it. I thought it was pretty overpriced for the park, but it was fun. Tomorrow is Sea World, then we drive up to Simi valley. Hopefully tomorrow night I can post pics. See you then.
