swallow study

Aidan has a swallow study scheduled for Monday afternoon. They are checking to make sure he is actually swallowing instead of aspirating food into his lungs. We have to do this study before we can start trying to give him food by mouth again.

The bronchoscopy is scheduled for Wednesday morning as well. Just thought I'd remind everyone of that.

Please say a prayer that both of these tests/procedures go well and that we get good results.

Aidan is doing well. We got a new formula for him that is not milk based and he seems to be doing much better on it. It is a pureed food formula with juice and fiber added to it. We still add a little cereal and extra fruit or veggies to it, but in just a few days we've seen a big difference in his temperment.

We're going to my cousin's graduation party this afternoon. I made the cake for the party. It's a a park, so I'm hoping that Aidan likes being outside for a while. Hopefully it won't be too hot for us out there.

Thanks everyone!
Erin

I made a vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling. The cake looked good before I tried to get in the van with it. It slid and smooshed the sides. Still edible though, that's what mattered.
