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.

Results for the 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.

Hospital bed!

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.

Uncle Dylan!

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.

Look who is finally home!

Superman came home yesterday by ambulance. He is not cleared for car traveling yet. He still has his NG tube in and we have to cathe him now because one of his medications is causing him not to be able to urinate. So we had to get trained on the NG tube replacement and cathing him. Which is harder than we thought it would be. But we are home and that is all that matters. He seems to be adjusting to home life okay. Thanks for all the prayers and positive thoughts. Superman loves and appreciates all the love from everyone.

Rehab finally!

We are finally at rehab! He is not adjusting to it well. He will not go to sleep. He has had 10mg of melatonin and is still not asleep. They have so many rules here it is not funny. No heating pad and no bags in the fridge, you have to label all your stuff. The one good thing is that he has his own room for now. He has been having a bunch of seizures since we have been here. I hope this rehab stay goes by quick because I am starting to get tired. I just want too be home now. It has been to long. Please continue to pray for my Superman and send positive thoughts. Thanks for all the love.

Superman says thank you!

Superman wants to say a big thank you for the wonderful donations that Michelle Belle collected to make our stay at the hospital more bearable. A big thank you to all that donated the wonderful gift cards, the parking passes, the check, snacks, and everything else. It is much appreciated. Please continue to pray for my Superman and send positive thoughts. Superman says thanks for all the love.
