We got him a cake and some ice cream. He ate few bites of the cake but wasn’t that interested in the icecream or cake. He did try to grab the cake and a little bit icing got on his fingers and in his hair. We got him a couple tee shirts and shorts! His brother got him a couple pair of pull on pants and a Superman tee shirt and a few other things which haven’t came yet. We did sing happy Birthday to him. His memaw called earlier and sang happy birthday to him also he enjoyed that and so did his niece Delilah.
Superman finally got his new wheelchair yesterday. I am happy with it because he can be more comfortable now. Superman would like to say Happy Birthday to his big brother Dacota.
Superman had fun at the pumpkin patch! He helped pick out a pumpkin to carve. The only thing that wasn’t fun was all the bees everywhere. They had lots of fun stuff to do. Hayrides, a little haunted house, music. They also had a store you could buy fresh vegetables and pies. The pumpkin patch we went to was Webster”s farm.
Dylan is sick!
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.
These are pictures of Superman from his swallow study!
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.
Feeding clinic appointment!
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.
Dylan is starting to feel better so, he was snuggling with his niece last night. He rolled over closer to her. The cat also had to get in one of the pictures too. We finally got air mattress from my moms house. Thanks so much for letting us use it sis. It is better then trying to take Dylan upstairs ever night. He still refuses to do his physical therapy. He has an appointment at cypress creek Saturday, hopefully he does work then.
Superman would like to thank everyone for all the wonderful cards he has been getting. He continues to get stronger every day. He is still not walking on his own or eating a regular diet. Superman is still recieving most of his feeds through the nasal gastric tube. The rate he going he will never be on a regular diet. He likes to hold the yogurt, pudding, or applesauce in his mouth instead of swallowing it and ends coughing because of it. He is still getting breathing treatments as well.
