Swallow test

Today, coworker Doro and I visited little Kenan and his mother at Sheba Hospital. Kenan was just out of his examination. The doctors tested how he is swallowing and how he can eat on his own.

It was hard for Kenan to swallow the liquid milk. The majority was going to his stomach, but a bit also was despositing into the lungs. So, they will change his nutrition to a thicker milk. Hopefully he can eat that better.

His body gets more and more strength – the therapy really helps. Today, he grabbed my finger and didn’t let it go for some minutes.

For now he is in the Secondary ICU and will learn how to swallow and eat. So we can pray that he will learn fast.
