Just another day...

I really haven't had much to blog about lately... and if I did, I wouldn't have time because someone has been fussy! Monday I took Kaylee back to Wake Forest for her 2nd swallow study. It's so funny because the speech pathologist always tells me a lot of the babies don't like the study because of being strapped into the little chair that they sit in while being x-rayed... but Kaylee doesn't mind at all. As long as she is eating she is happy!

The study showed she will still aspirate if her formula isn't thickened but it isn't as bad. The biggest improvement was the fact that only a very little amount of milk is going up into her nose each time she swallows, which is great considering last time we went formula would go into her lungs and all the way up into her nose each time she swallowed. Her esophagus still has damage but it looked slightly better than the last study 3 months ago.

Other than the swallow study not much has happened since I last posted. We are still dealing with the short 30-45 minute naps, which has been going on for several weeks. It's getting old... but hopefully she will go back to the 2-3 hour naps soon... I can only hope right? I found these 3 pictures which are oddly all of her sleeping...

She loves her flower!
Things have been stressful around here with Daniel's job search. I really would like to go back to work but it's hard to find a job that is flexible so that I can work around Daniel's schedule if he is able to find a job before racing season starts. Hopefully the next time I blog I will have good news!


  1. Good luck with the job search. I will say an extra prayer for you!

  2. glad kaylee is doing better! and i will be praying for your job search also. :)
