Florida Eliza is doing better! She’s still in the hospital, I hate to report, but things are looking up for her. Her intubation tube was removed a couple of weeks ago but they have been very careful – they were concerned about damage caused by the intubation tube, and the insertion of a trach.
But today is the day: Florida Eliza passed her swallow study with flying colors, and today at 8:00 PM Eastern (0100 London Time) she is going to have her favorite soda, a root beer, for the first time in weeks!
Her parents are going to make a celebration of it, they are going to serve Root Beer Floats to the hospital staff, and they invite all of their friends and supporters to enjoy their favorite (non alcoholic) beverage at the same time. So at 8:00 I’m having a Cheerwine in Eliza’s honor… and all the Funky Heart readers are invited to join in with your favorite drink, too!
