Good News/Bad News -- Originally Published January 3, 2008

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Slowly we crawl, millimeter by millimeter, back from the abyss.

As you might have guessed, we are talking about Michael's eating ability. This is one of those good news/bad news scenarios.

Good news: Michael can suck. Bad news: He doesn't want to and gets really pissed off when he accidentally does.

Good news: Michael can eat green beans. Bad news: Michael has to eat green beans whether he wants to or not. Other than his monumental temper and his desire to not eat ANYTHING, Michael seems fairly typical in his green-bean-eating ability.

Good news: Michael can swallow. Bad news: Michael only swallows his own saliva and sometimes milk injected with a syringe into his mouth. Heaven help us all if the bottle squirts into his mouth or if he pukes and gets a mouthful.

Good news: Michael has a trach and the world is happy that we cannot hear his temper tantrums. Bad news: Same as good news.

Not much to report, other than we do have a STUBBORN child. This too shall pass.
