We finally changed Ben’s MIC-KEY tube on Saturday morning to one which was a little longer. That seems to have done the trick. We have only small amounts of leakage, the skin redness is gone, and the indentation in his skin has also disappeared!
Ben seems to be growing! Or his ears are anyway. His hearing aids are falling out with very little jostling or provocation. We will need to have new earmolds fitted for him soon or risk having them fall out at Walmart! He is doing beautifully with his feeds and hopefully will be hitting the 10 lb mark soon.
We have discovered Ben’s first food dislike! Our occupational therapist has given us the go-ahead to try tiny tastes of food on his tongue. He doesn’t like peaches. So far we have tried them 3 times and he cries every time. We know he DOES like chocolate icing! (Yes, I know I shouldn’t be giving that to babies.)
Jonny is miserable with a cold. I hope we don’t all catch it from him. Mark seems to be getting a sore throat….
I am in the market for a new PDA. The one I have now (a Palm Tungsten T) doesn’t have enough memory to do what I need it to. Plus, the scrollbar on the right of the screen works sporadically, and the on/off switch is on the blink. I suppose it doesn’t help that I’ve dropped it multiple times over the 3 and a half years that I’ve owned it. Any suggestions for a good PDA under $500 would be appreciated.
Isaac wrote a “book” today, complete with illustrations. [Mark’s note: Isaac’s exact words were, “Daddy, I want to illustrate a book about Danny Phantom. We’ll draw the people first and add detail later.“] Any resemblance to the Danny Phantom cartoon from Nickelodeon is purely coincidental. 😉
Isaac’s story is a little violent. I was shocked by the last page! I think we let this kid watch WAY too much TV. From now on we’re sticking to Veggie Tales and going to church every Sunday! 😈
