4 Week Update

It is hard to believe that we are already at the four week mark. So much has happened during that time and we are thankful for all of it!

An update on Blake's g-tube: after talking with the NICU this morning he sounds like he is doing great. The surgery went as expected and less than 24 hours after having the g-tube placed they used it to feed him. He still struggles with swallowing but that will come with time. So right now he starts with the bottle and whatever he doesn't get down then is put in the g-tube (so no more feeding tube in the nose). He will also get medicines through the g-tube which will be nice in the long run. As for dialysis, they will start that back up on Monday so the g-tube has a chance to heal first.

This weekend is very busy with Jamie and the 3 little one all in Cherokee for her sisters wedding while Aaron is in State Center for baseball before heading to Iowa City Saturday and Sunday to see Blake. We want to wish Jess and Mitch all the best with their wedding and have a great Saturday!
