Hello again...

So Caleb continues to have his on and off days with drinking. The on days are pretty good now, he will drink OUNCES of milk and yes I said OUNCES. It is amazing the day he started chugging Brian and I were shocked. Love seeing him drink. One step closer to getting that feeding tube out, but we have to get him to drink daily and maintain his weight.

We are still having difficulty trying to get Caleb to walk. Good news we found out about a place closer to home that does speech, physical, occupational therapy and other services. We are so excited taht something like this exists so close to home! Brian and I DEFINITELY want to do this for Caleb, but this therapy does require Caleb to go to the facility. Now, Brian and I will have decide if we should wait until spring to start this therapy due to it being flu season. We are going to talk about it and also get Caleb's doctors' opinions. I am so so so so excited about this opportunity for Caleb hopefully this will help him with his walking, verbalizations, sign language, etc. This will be so great for him!

Unfortunately, Caleb has ANOTHER cold. We are very puzzled as were he got this cold. The poor guy has a very runny nose, cough, and is sneezing like crazy. We are praying that with rest he will recover from this cold and will not need antibiotics! Come on immune system, show us you are working!

Also another new development for our family. We found out that Caleb is going to be a big brother! That's right I'm pregnant. The ultrasound shows twins! One of the twins is a lot smaller than the other. We were planning on seeing the high risk docs that we saw when we were pregnant with Caleb as we are considered 'high risk' and even more so now that there are twin and those of different sizes. So we will see them in a couple weeks.

So as you can see we have been busy!
I will update again soon!

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!

I would call the therapy place and see if they have openings (unless you already have) I know with Eva's she is on the list for OT right now. I would also have a talk with them about Caleb needing things really clean and maybe you can bring some of his own toys to work with there. I know our place wipes EVERYTHING down after each child.
Again congrats on the twins!! I will be watching for updates.
