Swallow Study

Jack passed his swallow study today with flying colors. They were very pleased with the results. He will not start to gradually work his way to feeding from a bottle. This means that sometime today we should be discharged from the PICU and head up to the 3rd floor. While we will miss all the wonderful care they are given in the PICU we know that this is one step closer to taking the little guy home. They are hopeful that if everything goes well we can bring him home in the next week. We are constantly amazed at how well he is doing and know it is the results of everyone’s prayers on his behalf. We will try and post some pictures of his new room later tonight.

Oh Aimee this is so great! You guys are fabulous, you know? And if Marc thinks poopy diapers are yucky now, do we tell him what he has to look forward to with them in the future? :)

Thats great news, the swallow test is a big hurdle...he just continues to do better and better and before you know it you'll be graduating from the 3rd floor. Great job Jack!!! I did have to laugh at the whole diaper changing thing because I was the same way, except I put the diaper on backwards...tabs towards the front duh!!!

Hugs,
