My 365...

We had an awesome day today!  Casey had his two week post-operative visit with the oral surgeon, and the surgeon was able to remove the wire holding his mouth closed, and even better, remove the heavy rubber bumper between his teeth.  Yay!  The surgeon replaced the wires with heavy rubber bands, so Casey still has to keep his mouth closed.  But he can now brush his teeth twice a day, and even better, he can talk.  The doctor still says he has to be on liquids and soft foods for another six weeks, as he still has a lot of healing to do, but Casey is doing great.  I am so happy for him!  Thursday he has an appointment with his orthodontist, and is very excited about seeing him again.  Casey really loves his doctors.  They are awesome!

Now that the mouth guard is gone, his liquids can be a little thicker.  Just since being home from the doctor, he has eaten and entire can of blended corn, a can of Progresso Chicken Noodle and Vegetable soup, some blended beef Ramen with fresh peas, blended spaghetti I made for dinner, apple sauce, blended can of fruit cocktail and a bowl of blended Cap'n Crunch with Crunch Berries cereal.  Tonight he wants me to make some blueberry muffins and let them soak in milk and run them through the blender.  He is an eating machine...which is good since he has lost 20 pounds. I am happy because now I don't have to run everything through a fine strainer, which leaves all the goodness behind.

Casey has always been an awesome spirit.  Very positive and strong.  This experience has made him stronger and even more positive about his future, which makes me so happy for him.  He now has a perma-grin etched across his face.  This is a good thing.

Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers as Casey has made his way through this journey.  He is very appreciative of all the support he has gotten.  We are all very thankful.  God is good.  :)

Until next time...

 Still with his mouth guard and wires.
 Waiting for Dr. Griffiths.
 Home from the doctor...no wires, no mouth guard.
 Looking and feeling awesome!

And this was Garrett when he got home.  Casey thought it was hilarious, and it totally made his day.  Silly Garrett.  Brotherly love at its finest.  Thank you Garrett.  lol :)

Music I am listening to today...The glorious sound of Casey's clear voice.  :)
