Well since its been like four months, I thought it must be time to update. Chandler could never quite manage to take all eight bottles a day like he needed to, to get to come home. So after about a month of practice with little improvement it was decided that the best thing was for him to have a G tube placement. At the same time they also decided to do a procedure called a fundoplication which involves taking some of the stomach muscle and tying it around the esophagus. This will not not allow any thing in his stomach to ever come back up. This means that he will never be able to spit up or vomit. This procedure helps with his reflux. So finally on June 10th we were able to bring our baby home, after 96 days in the NICU.
