Tommy is in the hospital being treated for pseudomonas. It is a bacteria common in trached children (in the trachea). Treatment is IV for 7 days, so Tommy is hanging out flirting with all of the nurses, watching cartoons and having a grand old time. Other than the IV in his arm, you'd never know there was anything going on with the child. He's getting speech daily and PT an OT several times a week as well. We went to visit him last night and he pointed to a giant orange ball in his room and excitedly signed "jump, jump"! I'm guessing he likes jumping on the ball. Don't know how long they will keep him. It's all kind of an up in the air mess right now.
