I have to say, even though Owen doesn't talk yet, we all can see how smart he is. His g-tube feedings are continuously ran day and night. However, when the bag is empty, he needs a bath, or he pooped all over and we don't want it to get onto the tubing, we will unhook him from his feedings. He watches us so closely when we take care of his medical needs. Well, he has now learned how to hook up his g-tube to his feeding. He can open his g-tube, plug in the tubing, and even pushes the button on the machine to start it. What a cutie he is . . . and learning even in all that he has gone through.
Owen really amazes us with every step he takes. We are so blessed by him as we learn what life is really all about each and every day.
