Britten had a excellent day today! He ate some new foods and did very well eating and swallowing. For the first time, the therapist tried the "voice box" in his trach. He counted in English, Portuguese, and said some other words. Of course it is not his voice, but it is audible. He wrote "Thank U" on a piece of paper to one of his awesome friends who has spent a lot of time and several nights with him. He thanked one of the nurses for getting him a drink by kissing her hand. We consider all these things miracles and are amazed as our Father in Heaven continues to shower blessings upon us and Elder Schenk. We are also very grateful to all who are praying for our son and others like him.
All our love,
Steven, Karla, and Britten
