Out of ICU

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.
