Witt has been doing very well! His stomach continues to be an issue. Melanie has been trying all sorts of adjustments to his feeds to see if anything helps. Dr. Tapia is referring Witt to a motility specialist. It appears to take him a long time to actually digest the food. Friday is physical therapy and this past Friday Witt rode his rocking horse! Witt is definitely gaining much more strength in his neck and back. He even pulls himself up to sitting when Mel is holding him. Melanie and I have both noticed that Witt is trying to make some sounds. He actually can't because of the trach but he sure looks like he is trying!

A well deserved nap after therapy!

The scar that hurts my heart and the smile that heals my heart!!

Thank you all, for your continued support and prayers. Sometimes I forget all the physical problems that Witt has. The ventilator and oxygen are just a part of his life and his heart and brain, well I cant see their irregularities. Every now and then God gently reminds me of these things but not so I will hurt for Witt, Mel and Austan. When God reminds me, it is to remind me how incredible He dependent Witt's life is on dependent my life is on God. I am sorry to say that I still need the reminders especially when Witt is home and thriving. Please continue to pray....pray that I will never take a day in Witt's life, my life or any life for granted but use each day to bring Him glory whether at home or in a hospital!!!

Witt is proof positive there is a God in Heaven and He watches over us all. When I look at His tiny miracles like Witt and Bella and especially stare into their eyes...I feel like I'm looking into the Lord's....blessed Redeemer.
