The speech therapist did a feeding study on Andrew today to see how he was handling his food when drinking from a bottle.  It showed when she fed him on his back he aspirated a little.  Obviously, we do not want any aspiration at all, so she tried feeding him on his side.  No aspiration this way, but some of the milk went into his nasal cavity.  She is going to work on different positions tomorrow to see what works best for Andrew, then we and the nurses can start feeding him.  We were a bit discouraged, as the process seemed to slow down again, but then we thought about how scary it was when they took the breathing tube out of Andrew...we all thought they was going to have to go back in as they masked him, and he turned white....but the Lord intervened and Andrew made a speedy recovery after that VERY hard day.  Do it again Lord with his feedings!

I dressed him in this cute outfit that I got when I was out shopping yesterday.  Button down onesies are the easies style for him right now.  They are gentle on his neck/spine, and the wires can go though the holes. :)

I changed his diaper, took his temperature, and tucked him in before I left!


  1. He is the cutest little guy. He looks like a doll baby. Sweet little hands. Is his spine okay now. Praying for him.
