It's Not a Big Mac...
...but chicken soup will do! RJ is well enough to start eating for the first time in over two weeks! Yesterday's menu included Jello, Popsicle and yes, chicken noodle soup. And true to his desires, the very first thing to pass his lips was....drumroll please...Dr. Pepper. So far, it's sitting well and we think that soon he'll be working his way down the food list that he started putting together when he couldn't eat.
RJ was a little down yesterday morning so his Uncle Kevin came over and they spent the afternoon watching JackAss (blog central will deny ever bringing that DVD to the ward - it's pediatrics for goodness sake) and by the end of the day he was laughing and seemed much happier. He still isn't talking very much because he was on the ventilator for so long, but he is beginning to use his voice again and we expect that to be back to normal soon.
We'll keep you posted on the menu for today.
