Big progress for little Lava

Little Lava amazed all of the staff in her department at Sheba hospital today. Upon Lava’s arrival there on Thursday, she was unable to do anything with a bottle teat in her mouth at all.

However today, she showed her speech therapists that she has learned how to suck again. A big flock of doctors and nurses rushed in to see her as they were so pleased at her progress. Lava was bottle feeding successfully! She took a small volume, which was supplemented by the NG tube.

We hope to see her progress each day, and that she will be able to come to our community home with us soon. Well done Lava and her patient mum!
