Walked in this morning to one of our nurses holding porter in the air while the other one changed the bedding beneath him and they said "we had a code brown!" At first I was a little fearful with just hearing the word "code" but it quickly clicked as to what they were talking about. Porter had an adult size poo!! 200 cc. I'm sure you all wanted to know that.
Of course I immediately had to inform Steve as I was sure he'd be proud of that- he was. Porter continues to put out a lot of fluid from his chest tubes and is slowly shrinking back down to regular baby size. He's been fighting a little bit of a fever but it seems to go away with some Tylenol, hopefully it will stay away. Overall, he's had a good day of resting andpooing!
