Hello everyone! Somer is getting stronger everyday. She had a rough night last night but is feeling better this morning. Somer had to have a test to check for any leakage where they attached her upper intestines to her esophagus. They shot some dye down the tube in her noise and watched it on an X-ray. It was pretty cool (for me anyway). The best part was that Somer PASSED the test!!!!!! Hallejuiah! We both cried for joy. Somer got the tube removed from her noise! A Major accomplishment!

Her reward was ICE CHIPS (although just a couple),and you all know Somer and her water!!!! She was so happy and so was I and now you'll can share her great moument.

She is feeling better today, and so far this is her best day!

We all love you and thank you for all your well wishes and prayers.
