Max pulls on his ND tube

In this video, Carolyn is cleaning some of the gunk from Max's eyes and lips. Max also shows of his propensity for pulling on his feeding tube. The next morning he would successfully pull out his ND tube. Placing an ND tube takes a couple of hours (getting to the duodenum being harder than just stopping at the stomach). Max's feeding was halted while the NICU team were replacing his ND tube, something that they reported to us he did not enjoy. He was quite hungry by the time they restarted his feeding.
