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.

Throat Update

We went to the ENT 2 weeks ago (sorry for the delay in update, Harley has been in Indonesia and I've been in survival mode with 3 kiddos). While there, the doctor put a camera down her nose (she cried!) and instead of seeing improvement, she saw that her vocal cords were swollen, red and irritated from reflux. Before we can see improvement we need to get her reflux under control, hopefully with medication. Her reflux medicine hadn't been adjusted since discharge so the doctor doubled her dosage and now we wait, once again, to see improvement. We will follow up in 3 months. A big prayer request is that the medicine does heal her reflux. If not, surgery is a definite possibility in order to control the reflux from doing permanent damage.
