What about frogs? I like frogs!


« on: July 22, 2014, 04:25:18 AM »

Taz is 2.5 and has broken the 25 lb barrier thanks to 1500 cal of a hypoallergenic formula a day.

He still has dysphagia, and we have zero clue why he aspirates fluids. All his fluids have to be thickened to honey consistency, and the flow has to be restricted to what a 4 month old could tolerate. The surgical attempt to fix it in February of this year didn't do the trick. He has failed 3 swallow studies since the surgery. He had a sleep study last week. We don't have the results yet, but they said that they had enough data from 4 hours of sleep. We are being referred to a special aerogastric section of the hospital. We hope to get the referral and get in ASAP.

Prayers for answers would be appreciated. Taz really wants to drink water. Very soon his baby brother will be drinking water from an open cup, and Taz won't be allowed to do so. That will be a very sad and frustrating milestone for the Taz-man.

May God grant healing to Taz, restore his little body to function as it should, and grant strength to his family.

Lord, have mercy!

No, no updates at the moment. I still haven't heard anything from anyone. But here is a shot of Taz with his "little" brother Nash.


Nash is the chubbier one in the dinosaur jammies, Taz is wearing blue. He's fighting some sort of cold or something, that is why his eyes are all zoned out. Our eldest son Ollie is in the upper corner.

Awww!  They are both so cute!  Taz has a booboo on his forehead.  Sad

May God grant all of your children and their parents good health and prosperity!

He took a nosedive off the bed, and he hates scabs. So it looks scarier than it is.

Thanks for the prayers. I really appreciate it. Raising Taz has broken and reset my spirit in ways that I can't even begin to describe.

Lord have mercy. Boys will be boys. I don't think that any boy likes scabs.

Anyway, I will continue to pray for you and your awesome family that the Lord will heal  them.
