It gets better . . .

Parker is breathing room air. No more nasal canula. He was also allowed to drink some water and eat some vanilla pudding. Today we will work towards transitioning him away from his feeding tube. He’s napping now and he sounds great. He’s been a little “junky” (snot in the lungs) but he’s learning how to cough it up and learning what to do with it. Remember, he’s always coughed things up to his trach before. Now when he coughs it lands in his mouth. We do try to suction his mouth but that isn’t proving to be very popular.

    What great progress. You can realy enjoy that hospital food now that you’re on the airway floor–gummy worm dirt cake! May your weekend be uneventful.

    No surprise about the mouth suctioning. Ha, ha. I hope things continue to go so well. It’s great to hear he’s able to eat.
