Today went pretty well. I really liked Jennifer and Jack seemed pretty happy too. She snuggled him up and he fell asleep. I showed her around and she asked a few questions.
Once he gets his Medicaid number she will be here Monday - Friday from 10:00 to 6:00. I hope that happens next week. This was a good start because we got to talk and get to know each other today.She got here at 12:00 and I fed him while she took notes. When he was finished she got his feeding bag and cleaned it out. I wasn't sure what to do. But it felt good to have help.
She's been a nurse for 31 years and has been with this company for 3. The last child that she worked with also had cerebral palsy and was G tube dependant. She used the exact Zevex feeding pump that Jack uses. I always thought that I would have to show them everything. But with Jennifer I will only have to show her how I do things for Jack. She seemed very confident and I felt comfortable with her.
So I was nervous for nothing. I'm getting help with Jack and it's starting to feel pretty good.
