Look who’s flashy with a fresh, tape-free face! (And yes, that’s some cute hair growing in.) Naaman has been taking meds by mouth and has been eating enough to gain some weight with decreased tube feeds. He’s earned himself NG tube removal today!
We are beyond excited to see his face again without the dressing. It’s going to take some getting used to for us (not him) because we did so many things to accommodate him, like zip or button up shirts and being extremely careful washing him in the tub. Now we can pull the shirt over his head and let him splash in the tub!
It’s still a bit probationary, as he has a steroid pulse (five days of steroids) this past week. It makes him eat more; however he has been trending to eat more and feel less nauseous (with meds of course) so we are hopeful. That means we can hang Foxy on the shelf, but not quite pass her on to someone else yet. Thank you God for answered prayer.
