Timothy is doing really well. Over the past few days, Timothy's eating has decreased, so the doctors have decided that a feeding tube was the best to get him enough calories. We have also been adding formula to my breast milk to make it more calorie rich. He had an upper GI test this morning that revealed moderate acid reflux, so he is now getting medicated for that. The test was a blessing because it is the first test that has revealed something that could be causing his lack of interest. The hope is that over the next couple of days, he will start to heal and be more interested in eating. It has been quite a rollercoaster ride of emotions, but Jared and I are doing well...we feel blessed that he is in such a great place and getting such great care. He has been much more aware of his surroundings, got his first real bath, and is a wonderful snuggler. We don't know if he will be home for Christmas, but are thankful that we have been so richly blessed. :)


  1. Thanks for the update! I've been thinking about you lots. I'm glad they found a possible answer! Hopefully he will be rolly polly in no time.

    Love to all 3 of you!

  2. I'm so glad you posted an update. We have been wondering how everything is going. We've wanted to stop by a few times, but miss you every time. I imagine you are spending many, many hrs at the hospital. Praying for you guys!! Merry Christmas :)
