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.
So Superman had an appointment with his pediatrician today and he was put on more medication for his breathing. This guy has never had any problems with his breathing until his long hospitalization. Oh not mention the ambulance rides to and from his appointments because he is still not cleared for car rides yet. His progress is slowly coming along. He ot,pt, and speech a couple times a week. His will start coming out soon for school. So, I have been busy since he has been home. Next week he has two appointments a follow up with the pediatrician and one at the feeding at Kennedy kreiger out patient. Please continue to pray for Superman and send positive thoughts. Superman says thanks for all the love, prayers, and well wishes.
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.
Superman says happy new year to all his fans and may you all have a blessed new year. He has been doing pretty good the past few days. We will probably be heading to rehab within the next week or so. Superman is going to Kennedy kreiger for rehab. I only plan on staying for 2 weeks that should give them plenty of time to do what they need to get him back to himself. Please continue pray and send positive thoughts and thanks for all the prayers!
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.
So this happened today. They had him on bed today that rotated to a standing position. He tolerated it pretty well, he was standing up for about 20 minutes. It looks like he has gotten taller to me. They also removed the second chest tube. He does still have to be suctioned regularly because he still has a lot of secretions. They want to talk to us about going to rehab and few other things. Thanks for all the prayers and positive thoughts. Superman sure appreciates everything.
Superman is starting to get back to himself. He went down to IR yesterday and had another chest tube put in his right lung so that makes two chest tubes now. They are supposed to remove the first one sometime today. He was up most of the night coughing up secretions and being suctioned through a nasal trumpet. He has been having a few more seizures, they only last about 30 seconds. He sounds horrible. I still dont get how long it took to diagnose him with necrotizing pneumonia. I want everyone for all the prayers and positive thoughts. Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts.
