Happy new year!
Hazel and Grant continue to grow, learn new things and do more.
Since last time, Grant was able to come down on his oxygen and he has another test coming up very soon! We are hoping he will be off the oxygen by his first birthday. Hazel had her swallow study (click here to view the video). She did well, but not enough to conclude that she would not aspirate when bottle fed, so we continue to take that slowly.
Hazel continues to adjust to her feeding tube and has switched formulas in hopes that it will reduce her spitups and vomiting. It does not seem to have a profound effect but is maybe a bit better. The new formula smells like bad Cheetos, so it is probably a good thing she does not taste it.
Everything is extremely busy, so we will just leave you with some photos and videos:
