Things are looking even better today! First, let me just say a BIG THANK YOU to ALL of you who have been praying for him.

This morning the X-ray of his tummy looked perfect so he was able to start a clear liquid diet. I wish you could have seen him!! Grant has eaten his weight's worth in Jell-O today. At one point he had a spoon in each hand and was digging in one right after the other to keep the food moving steadily towards his mouth. He was so happy to be eating. If he handles this well, they will start him on some thicker foods tomorrow - like mashed potatoes and yogurt.

The doctors now think that once Grant's ANC gets high enough, which should be in the next day or so, that he will be taken off the triple antibiotics. He will stay on the oral vancomicine for the C-Diff though. Also, if he continues to do well with the food intake and handles it well, they will take him off the IV nutrition. So, they think we should be able to get out of here before the weekend!!! That will be the best Mother's Day gift I could receive!!!

Well, I have to go get him ANOTHER Jell-O, so I will update more tomorrow. Again, thank you for all the support and prayers!
