They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I wonder what two videos are worth? From Jadon's busy day today.
First unaided steps in over 6 months
First bites of food in over 4 months
It is absolutely wonderful and thrilling to see the amazing progress that this little guy has made, particularly over the last three weeks. He is amazing!
As far as moving forward is concerned, the ID (infectious diseases) team decided that they want Jadon to remain on the caspofungin (antifungal IV medication) for at least another 3 months. They really, really want to make sure that the fungal infection is out of his sternum (what little remains of it after his continued infection over the summer!) The remaining issue right now is his fluid balance and need for significant diuretics. Changes have been made in the hopes that he can get off the IV diuretics shortly.
