Swallow Study

We just got back from the swallow study. They had me feed him with a varity of different nipples with normal formula. The results did show that he asperated a little. They moved to a nectur consistancy and had me do the same thing. This time he awallowed it all like a champ!! Which means no ng tube and no g-tube!!! (at least for now they have to see how he does on it over the next few days). They also gave him some apple sauce and he did fine with that! We are so happy!! Please continue to pray that his feedings go well!!!

I forgot to write about our exciting visitor on thursday. For those of you that dont know, Malachi has many sibblings. 3 of them (Gwen 18 mo., Raven 3 and Joshua 6). Jennifer is the adoptive mom of Gwen, and Lenora had Raven and Joshua. We have been in contact with Jennifer and Lenora and have tried to meet up a few times, but due to illness we have been unable to. Anyways, Jennifer was at Rush for an appointment and found out we were still here. So she came up! We got to visit with her for a while and we FINALLY got to see pictures of his sibblings! They all look alike. I seriously think they (all 4) are the cutest kids! She kept saying "welcome to the family" and crying. I am so excited to get to know everyone and develop a relationship with both families! And it will be amazing for all the kids to grow up knowing eachother!! This was the start of a life long family and friendship.
