So far so good. Michael's emesis for the past 48 hours has only occurred when he coughs too hard and gags himself. There is nothing we can do about that -- it would happen to any of us. So, the good news is that we have found a feeding level that is successful in controlling the problem.

Bad news is that Michael still isn't taking too well to it. He won't sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time during the day because he isn't "full". We'll work on that this week and talk to the plastic surgeon on Friday to find out what the threshold really needs to be. What is considered "no puking" for a baby? How long after surgery will it take for the stitches to heal? We'll have answers soon.

In the meantime, Michael is off his Augmentin (antibiotic for his last bout of tracheitis). That should make him feel even better for awhile, but he will probably get it back in the week before surgery as a preventative. We'll have to check on that this Friday, too. Today he starts low doses of another antiobiotic that is supposed to help empty his stomach faster. vIt takes the place of the Grumpy Medicine. vWe'll have to see if it works, and if it does, is the cure worse than the disease?

We hope to have more good news to give you by the end of the week. vThanks to all of you for tuning in to the Michael-Saga. We miss and love all of you and cannot wait to see each of you in the New Year.

Megan, Adam, and Michael.
