Hollah, weekend! What’s on your schedule? We’ve got a packed one on the hospital front; CPR + nasogastric tube training classes, since Olivia will be coming home with a feeding tube until she gets the full clear from her speech pathology team. (They have to wait a period of time for her to just grow before repeating a study on her, so in that interim, if she’s cleared to come home, she will!). Beyond that, I’ve got quite a bit of shoots for le blog to make happen, and we’ve got a date night on the books. Bring it on, weekend. And bring on the weekend reading!
