We decided to plant a memorial garden for Dylan! We planted all kinds of flowers. Mostly the colors of Superman. We have a few purple flowers for epilepsy.
Happy Valentine’s day from Superman!
A few new pictures of Superman!
Look what finally came!
He finally got his go talk 4 the other day. Now we can work on getting him to Express himself. He didn’t want his picture taken as you can tell. At least he is smiling in the one picture. I am so happy he is finally feeling better as well.
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 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.
A few pictures of Superman!
My Superman is growing up up to fast. I can’t believe how much he has changed. He is so handsome.
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.
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.
