Yesterday was an exciting day! Dennis had several appointments in Rochester and one of them was the swallowing test! This test determines the removal of the feeding tube. He passed with flying colors and the feeding tube is now history!! I had taken some small applesauce containers along just in case the tube was removed. His remark was “ I never knew applesauce could taste so good !” We, also, met again with the surgeons and they feel he is progressing as expected! The boot will be on his leg for a few more weeks and the trachea tube is healing well. Our next appointment in Rochester is the 20th and we will meet with the oncology department to determine what kind of treatments he will have or if he needs treatments. Thanks to everyone for your continued prayers and encouraging words!
