With all the morning's vomit I forgot to mention our new sad news, on top of getting and learning the pump and dealing with huge amounts of vomit on Saturday, we also learned that Brian's grandfather had taken a bad turn for the worse and was likely to pass away soon.
On Sunday morning, his grandfather, Edward McCarthy Sr passed away. He was 88 years old. He lived in Pennsylvania, near Brian's parents in Pittsburgh. Brian's grandpa used to attend Brian's hockey games when he was little and Brian misses him terribly.
We are doing all we can to get Brian to Pittsburgh for the funeral this coming Friday, which means that I'm on vomit patrol soley on my own.
I may have mentioned in the past, but one of our favorite nurses for Katilyn in the NICU was Rose from Brazil, and she has so generously offered to come to our home and help me out while Brian is away if she can get some shift trades at work. I don't think anyone else can help if they don't have nursing skills or at least know how to operate a feeding pump.
