Thanks for your continued interest. Yitzchak Meir has been transferred from the Intensive Care to the standard New Baby Ward. Even though the neurologists said that he would never take a bottle, he began feeding from one on Thursday. He is back on a feeding tube, though, because it takes about 45 minutes to properly feed him with a bottle. There is still extensive damage to the brain, and all medical books would say that one could expect a severely handicapped or retarded child based on this.
We are still pondering whether to place him in a foster home, an institution, or to bring him home. This decision has been complicated by Yitzchak Meir’s recent improvements.
