Going GREAT!

Its amazing the change in a child when they have a good nurse(We love Donna)! Our nurse yesterday...not good. Our nurse today...GREAT! Malachi yesterday, not good. Malachi today, GREAT! Peewee had a MUCH better day today! They got the culture results back and there was nothing, meaning no infection! That made everyone VERY happy. They took some more x-rays early this morning to check his bowel, yesterday they thought they saw something fishy but the x-rays today showed it was just poop. They gave him another suppository and bam, we had poop, lots and lots of poop. He felt much better and started acting like himself. He even gave his uncle Mark a few smiles! The nurse today give his Tylenol with codeine which made Malachi a happy camper. He was able to rest and felt good being awake for a while. What a difference a day makes. We are thankful for a great day. Oh and the prayers for pee worked! Thank you!

Tonight I get to sleep at RMH and get a good nights rest. Tonight when I was leaving, I looked a peewee and for the first time i was proud of him. He has been through so much in his short 6 months of life and NEVER complains! He continues to amaze us with his strength and determination. Nothing will hold Malachi back, I am 100% sure of this! I am proud to be his mom and so extremely lucky to call him my son! I can't wait to see what barriers he breaks through, what mountains he climbs, and the depths he goes to, to prove people wrong. The amazing thing is that while he is teaching all of us what it means to love unconditionally, accept others, challenge the norm and enjoy every moment, he will also be teaching us how to be humble. He will not love unconditionally to get noticed, he will not accept others to gain popularity and he will not challenge the norm to become powerful. He will do all these things out of the goodness of his heart and that's a lesson I think we all need to learn! The Lord is using this 11lb. baby to show the greatness of God in EVERY aspect of life and Malachi will live up to the meaning of his name... "His messenger." I am so very proud of my son and I will shout it to the world, dont be afraid of our differences but be open to learning. I think you will be amazed by the outcome!!
