For Your Viewing Pleasure:


Just the past week, Mason has decided that he can and will take his medicine by mouth. This is SUCH a huge step! He has been working towards getting his tube taken out by eating and drinking more, and now taking his medicine by mouth. 

I am so amazed with him. He set a goal to have his tube out, and worked hard to do what needed to be done.  We haven't gotten the okay to take it out yet--we're going to talk about it at his next appointment--but it came out tonight when he was throwing up. He had feeds running all day today, so it was the perfect time to give him a night without it. He is so proud of himself! And I am, too. 

...and just for the record--lest you worry--his tube will be back in the morning, until we can talk to his doctor.
