We created this blog to help us document the story of Malia starting at 29 weeks in utero. There have been and continue to be struggles for Malia and for us. It is evident to us, as you will see, that the power of prayer is mighty and God does love us and hear our prayers. We welcome and invite you to follow along with us. Though lengthy, start from the bottom to get the entire story so far.

Malia update - I'm 5 months old now!

I'm 5 months

I've been doing very well. I'm taking it easy on my mommy and daddy and I can't even remember the last time I puked all over them. I'm taking my whole bottle (100mls) 4x's a day and then Mom uses my feeding tube for the early morning and late night feeding. That way I get to sleep while I eat. It's a pretty sweet deal :) I've been sleeping through the night for a long time now. My mommy even has to wake me most mornings at 7:00am to get me started on my feeding schedule.
I went to the cardiologist yesterday and everything is still looking good. They are not sure if I have WPW anymore but I need to stay on my cardiac meds until I'm one years old just to make sure. Then I can do a trial off my medication to see if my heart goes into SVT determining if I have WPW or not.
I also went to the ENT (ear,nose, throat) doctor yesterday as well. She put a camera down my nose and into my throat to see if my throat is healing on it's own (I didn't like that very much). The doctor was very pleased with my progress and said that she can see healing taking place and wants to do a repeat check in 4 months. She thinks that as my throat heals, my voice will become more audible as well. It was hard for her to say if my throat will completely heal on it's own but she's seen infants do amazing things and she is hoping that it will.
