Julianne had an echo yesterday that showed some improvement in heart function! We are so excited and thankful!
She also had a swallow study yesterday. It showed that she is aspirating (getting some liquid into her lungs) thin liquids but doing fine with thicker stuff, like baby food. She had her first taste of food, baby applesauce, yesterday in the floroscopy room where she was getting the swallow study. She ate it right up! We are now supposed to give her applesauce 2 -3 times per day and have another swallow study in about a week. For now she's not allowed to have any bottles though.
Julianne's appointments are set for her New Orleans doctors. She'll be seeing them at the end of next week. In addition to her Cardiologist, Pediatrician and Gastroenterologist she'll need a follow-up with a Pediatric Neurologist, that won't be for 6 - 8 weeks though. She should be getting a visit from "Early Steps" (Louisiana's Early Intervention program) some time soon. They know our situation and want us to call the therapist to schedule her appointment.
Well, we're excited to be getting home very soon! Thank you for your continued prayers for Julianne. She's doing so well!!! We are blessed to have so many people who care and pray for Julianne.
