Mom's notes - 
Ms. Ashley from Loving Hearts, Little Hands childcare in Grand Haven did an amazing job learning how to feed Gabriel.  You forget how many little things you have picked up in therapy though the years.  It was interesting to watch someone who did not have all the background, learn how to feed Gabriel.  I am so happy with how well things went.  I know Gabriel is in amazing hands while he is at childcare!!!

Gabriel had a VERY 'wet' cough this morning.  Therapy sped up the reading of Gabriel's swallow study.  Ms. Kate has not had a chance to type up all of her findings yet but she did tell me what she saw.  Gabriel is aspirating more than originally thought.   He has the worst kind of aspiration, Silent.  Gabriel does not cough, choke, make noises, or anything else when liquid enters his lungs.  We will be having a meeting tomorrow to discuss what this means for Gabriel's drinking and feeding at this point.  This too will be a blip in our radar down the road.  I just want to make sure that we are keeping Mr. Gabriel safe.
