New Button

Vera had her button changed today, 3 months after it was inserted. It had been leaking because the valve stopping the milk from flowing out had become faulty. In less than 3 minutes it was yanked out, and a new one stuffed in. There was bleeding, a little of gooey insides outside, and a howling baby. But she was such a trooper. She remained motionless for the procedure and stopped crying soon after.

She's vomited quite a bit after the change. Some bleeding on the insides of the lining can irritate the stomach. Hopefully it settles.

Less wet tissue-wet clothes-wet gauze days are up ahead. Hooray!
