WITT ATE!!!

Witt did great in the swallow test...glory! He was able to eat cereal without any aspirating. He actually did pretty good on the handful of swallows from a bottle but there is no need to even push this. The speech therapist is recommending that the OT move on to working with Witt to be able to drink from a cup. He will just skip the bottle. Witt probably won't start the cereal till after he gets the gtube. Although he did great, the speech therapist said not to risk adding anything new until after the surgery. This is the same wonderful speech therapist that was a part of the first swallow test. We also ran into one of Witt's first doctors when he was born. Dr. Bakta thought he looked huge! Melanie said that we think he looks huge too because we know how much he has actually grown! Here are some pictures from today. More proof of his "hugeness" and how cute he is!
