Dylan had a good time at the family reunion. The reason why he had such a good is he got to eat some mashed potatoes and gravy. We sat at the table most of the time so we didn’t really get to talk to many people unless they came over to say hi. The reason for staying at the table is because he still has his ng tube so, I had to watch him like a hawk because of that. It was nice seeing everyone.
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.
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.
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.
This, guy right here is still not walking yet. This recovery from necrotizing pneumonia is taking way to long. I thought he would be walking by now. It has been six months now altogether. Therapy is going okay but it takes 20 minutes for him to get warmed up. I am so mad at the doctors at John Hopkins for taking so long to diagnose him.
This guy has an appointment tomorrow at the feeding clinic at Kennedy kreiger! I hope they give us some good news about the nasal gastric tube and his feedings. The news I, wish for is that he doesn’t have to have it anymore because it has become a pain in the butt. Especially when he pulls it out, then it takes me awhile to get it back in. He does everything he can to hinder it from going back in. He will bite it, he won’t swollow it and he thinks it funny the whole time. Another reason ,I don’t like it is because he always ends up sick for a couple a days.
Superman says thank you for all the get well, Birthday, st. Patrick’s day cards! Tuesday he starts at his new physical therapy center, he will be doing aquatics. I, think he will enjoy that because he has always enjoyed the water.
