Before blogging came into my world, I thought I was the only one who tracked "anniversaries" of certain events; mostly just in my head, these moments in time quickly became reference points for me. It amazed me, as a heart mom, just how many "anniversaries" we have...some bigger than others, but I frequently refer to them to piece together the timeline of tests, procedures and surgeries that would become our life. I just realized today, that it is an anniversary day. And it seems appropriate that this anniversary would mark the date our little one got the long awaited for g-tube.
One year ago today Liam had a gastrostomy tube placed for feeding because he was aspirating all liquid consistencies. He was just shy of being 4 months old and we had previously been using a NG-Tube for nourishment up until that point. It always seems every time we get on the other side of a surgery, the tube and feeding issues become a bit challenging and somewhat of an obstacle. We are again on total tube feedings for the time being....But we are praying for complete healing in the area of his airway and feeding issues. We know God has a plan and we are trusting for His timing and healing to be delivered.
I've got some fun pictures I want to share....oh so cute, and I am having OH so much FUN staying at home! It has been truly a blessing on all fronts. Liam is so chatty now and is saying all sorts of words: Go, Sponge Bob, kitty, down, up, hi, bye, the list goes on and on! He is just so expressive...it is so nice he can communicate verbally some now! It is also great to wake up and spend all day with Liam....now if only Dustin could stay home too... =)
