His doctor said he is doing much better today. He wants to see him back on Friday to see if he is still improving. So far he has been doing much better. Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts.
We took Dylan to the doctors this morning and it wasn’t good news. The doctor wanted to admit him to the hospital. He says he has bronchitis or pneumonia. But he gave him a breathing treatment in the office and his oxygen level came back up so he let us take him home. He is on an antibiotics, steroids and breathing treatments every 4 to 6 hours. He has to go back to the doctors tomorrow morning to be checked out again. Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts.
Dylan is not feeling good today because we had to replace the ng tube over the weekend. Everytime we have to put the tube back in Superman ends up sick. He still has been refusing to cough. If we could get him to do that we probably wouldn’t have this problem everytime we replace th ng tube. Please keep him in your prayers and positive thoughts. Thank you in advance. He was resting last night with his niece Delilah. It was so adorable.
Superman is finally staring to like his niece Delilah. You can tell she loves him by the way she looks at him. I am not sure what he really thinks about her yet. The second picture is my favorite one.
These are pictures of Superman from his swallow study!
So the results showed that he was silently aspirating each time he swallows. We was told he could only have a half a cup of purees twice a day now. They also went back up on the ng feeds again. The biggest thing is they are always trying to push a g- tube for feeding. I want my son to be able to eat again. He loves to eat again he loves to eat. He is a cheeseburger and pizza guy. He is so sad not being able to do that anymore. He has been working really hard in his therapy’s. My first question was how is he suppose to gain his muscle strength in his throat if he is not using those muscles. They proceeded to tell me they have excercises for that and you can an appointment with me for that. Just show me the exercises and I can do them at home because you should of did that while he was inpatient at Kennedy kreiger. He shouldn’t be like this in the first place because of seizures.
Dylan got haircut last week. He always look so much older afterwards. Superman is having a wonderful week so far. Remember his appointment is Friday so please continue to pray and send positive thoughts for a good outcome.
This guy right here has a swallow study coming up this month. Hopefully he doesn’t end with any respiratory problems between now and then. We was told if he does have any respiratory issues the appointment would be canceled. His study is on July 19. So please keep Superman in your prayers and positive thoughts that he stays healthy between now and his appointment. This will determine if the ng tube can be removed. Now all we have do is get him up on his feet and walking on his own.
This is a sweatshirt my older son Dacota designed for his little brother Dylan also known as Superman. I think he did a wonderful job on it. He loves his brother so much. Superman has been doing pretty good lately. He is still on the ng tube and going to physical therapy ever other week but he still is not walking on his own.
Some cute pictures of Superman and his niece Delilah! Dylan really doesn’t like his picture taken often so, you have to do it when he is in a good mood or feeling good. Which is not that often here lately. Please him in your prayers. Thanks!
