The boys had good therapy and school days this week. Jax drank an entire yogurt smoothie with his feeding therapist. That's 3 oz... that is the most he's ever consumed by mouth in a sitting in his entire LIFE! His tummy is doing amazing and I have his pump rate up to 150mls/hr (that's 5 oz an hour), the fastest he's ever been! Mind you, he was taking 3 hrs for a pump-feeding just a few months ago, and now it takes about 1hr, 15 mins - HOLY COW! And he's still increasing the rate each day, so rock on Jax man!
Tonight was Jax's last day of antibiotics and he has about 5 days left of his Orapred steroid. His last follow up doctor appointment is Wednesday and hopefully everything checks out well. I think it will.
I made sure to take a few pictures for y'all...
|We used our Christmas money to buy the boys used IPod touches off Craigslist. Well, they're so entranced with them that we have to actually limit their use! They play preschool puzzles and match up games as well as watch their movies on them.|
