I just got an e-mail from my mom. My grandpa had another swallow test and he gets to start eating actual food! (Since Spring Break, he has been eating soft foods like applesauce, yogurt, ice cream, etc), but now he gets to start eating regular foods. He has gained 6 pounds, has gone from walking with his walker to using a cane (and often just carries the cane) and is overall just doing great! What a blessing! One of the biggest blessings from all of this is that he had lost his sense of smell and taste about 1 1/2 years ago, during the midst of all of this, it came back! Now of course that made it hard on him while he was not able to eat, but what a blessing to have it back now that he can start eating again. Grandmama is a wonderful cook and now Papa can enjoy her cooking again. My grandmother had an appointment with her eye doctor last week and is doing well. She does not have to go back until May. So another huge praise there! Prayer really works!
Because of this big news, I'll save my update on last night's FPU class for tomorrow.
