Wesley has NO LEAKS!!

This is just going to be a quick update, but doctors tested today and Wesley does not have any leaks in the connections for his esophagus or colon!! This means that he is able to eat and drink by mouth now. About 2 hours after the test, Wesley was given a sippy cup with Pedialyte, and he's been nursing it ever since. He isn't drinking a lot, but we are so thankful that he is drinking at all!! The rest of the tubes come out tomorrow, and God-willing, we will all be sleeping at home by Sunday night.
-------
Thank you for the prayers. Please continue to pray that Wesley continues to improve and that he begins to love to eat and drink.

I know you have hoped and prayed for this day for a long time! So glad you are finally seeing the healing come to fruition! Praying no further set backs and you can get back into your family routine! BTW-they say a "rule of thumb" is that it takes about one week for each day you or a loved one has been in the hospital to fully get back to "normal"...go easy on yourselves!

Awesome news Staci! Praise God for his goodness. Dont feel guilty letting him watch tv, what ever works so he keeps still and heals. So happy that everything worked out and he is finally able to eat and drink.
