quick update

So After Heather's visit yesterday Yale spike a fever...grrr.... luckily it is just a bug in his picc line.... but that means a round of it was an optimistic goal for friday...but now we're moved to tuesday... which is fine with me... figures that the trouble wasn't over with that darned picc of his.

Yale also had a feeding study done today... and he will require thicked formula until his vocal cord works... he's not an "aspiration" risk... but there was one little trickle they saw...and so better safe than sorry....and his swallow was much more cleaner when we thickened his formula with some rice cereal... no biggie...

The biggest change is Yale's personality....Wow is he ever in good spirits now that the drainage tubes are out... OMG... Its shocking really

And a quick thank you to the Jobes and the Mitchells for Yale's gifts... they're great and unnecessary.... but they sure make him smile :)

I heard of Yale's transplant news on and I had to come here to see for myself. You're such a strong mama (I'm sure you've heard this a zillion times), but really, you are. This will for sure be the merriest Christmas for you and your family!! All the best for a happy and healthy 2009. Thinking of you!!
