Peyton has had a great week at eating school. By the end of the week he was eating 2 to 3 ounces four times a day. On Friday he had a swallow study over at Baylor Medical Center just to make sure that everything is going down correctly. He did very well. It was decided that for now we will be thickening his fluids to the consistency of nectar or store bought chocolate milk. He will start working on drinking again on Monday. I am very excited about his progress with his eating. This week he will start trying more foods like......lasagna, mac and cheese and others that are all pured. We are not doing much this weekend other then relax. I hope that you all have a great weekend.
This is a blog I created to keep you updated on the journey of Peyton Andrew Nichols. He was a 25 weeker born on Sept. 2, 2005, weighing only 1 pound 4 ounces. He lived 207 days in the NICU at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas then 43 days at Our Children's House at Baylor before he was able to come home. What a great journey we are on with him. God is good all the time!
