And the Verdict Is...

We can keep the feeding tube out (at least for another week)! Dakin gained anywhere from eight-tenths (does that reduce? Yeah, I guess so...four fifths) of a pound to a pound (our digital scale is not perfectly accurate). Wow! The dietician was impressed and said to keep doing what were doing for another week and we'll re-evaluate next week. Yay Dakin! He's been eating like a pig! Must be nice to have that stupid tube out of his sinuses and throat. He's eating so much better than he ever did with it in, and he's even burping!

Bravo Dakin! Stay away from that feeding tube for muuuuuch more than one more week....Better forget about it and get stronger and stronger every day. We are praying for this!
