Charlie's hair was getting kind of long and mullet-like so our friend Alisha agreed to come to the hospital to fix the problem. We put him in a physical therapy chair and she worked her magic on the majority of the head then I held him so she could get the mullet in the back. Of course he didn't like having his haircut because it involved moving his head but he looks so handsome, it was worth it. Rob gave orders for "high and tight army haircut" but I thought Charlie's shunt and scars needed a little concealment so we left some length on top. His hair still has a strawberry tint.
Charlie's swallow study has been postponed once again until tomorrow but this time it wasn't because of him. I guess all swallow studies have been rescheduled, I think the therapist is out today. So we will all have to wait some more. He has been pretty upset since 9:30 this morning. He just grunts and kicks his legs a little. I don't think he likes the sensation of his tummy being full again. The doctor has slowed down his feedings to run over 2 hours to see if that helps. The nurse also is sucking out air from his tummy periodically during the day so he doesn't feel bloated.
