Just thought I'd let you know that Esther's first 24 hours without the feeding tube went great. She even slept for 7 hours straight last night. And, the greatest thing was that she gained weight! So we are just finishing day 2 without the feeding tube, and she did better today that yesterday even!
I'm really tired tonight, so I'll have to keep it short - I was up early this morning to feed Esther (4 am) and couldn't get back to sleep, so I did some more investigating on the lead testing and found that our existing products can be sold without the testing that will be required when the Aug 10 deadline hits - I only need certification from the mills/manufacturers of the component parts. That I am able to do, and already have several certificates already! Yeah!
For my customers this means that for now our Snap-EZ line (including all those cute prints) will still be available for at least another 6 months or so. I'm hoping they will come up with some exclusion for garments as fabrics are usually lead free (I've never heard of a fabric having lead, it's usually paints).
We are hoping to bring Esther to church tomorrow (but we aren't going to let anyone hold her yet, as this soon after surgery a cold could land her back in the hospital again), and I'm really lookng forward to going again as I've only been to church twice since the first of September!
