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!
Superman finally got his stair lift installed today. They had me test it out to make it works properly. It goes up pretty quickly. This will help out a great deal with getting him to the shower. I’m not sure how he will feel about it though.
So we finally got a hospital bed for Dylan! I had to put it in my living room. So, Superman is still sleeping downstairs still but he is more comfortable now. A thank you to wonderful couple who donated it to us. He also got a nice little gift in the mail from someone special. He says thank you so much. Superman has not been feeling to good lately. I am asking for healing prayers for Superman. Thanks in advance.
