Yes, as usual it has been far too long since our last post! So much has happened and it’s all wonderful! The most recent news is that we have been traveling with Lukas to Los Angeles the last few months to try a new kind of therapy: Cuevas Medek Eercise (CME). We heard about this […]

Well it has been a very eventful couple of months!  In October, we finally got the results of the EEG and genetic testing we had done at Kennedy Kreiger.  After all of the testing and waiting to hear from the neurologist there, we were finally told that we should do exactly what we had been […]

Well, we officially took our first trip with the little bear.  In September, we went to Baltimore so that we could take Lukas to Kennedy Krieger Institute, where we were able to meet with specialists in many fields to get as much information as possible about how we can help Lukas.  While we were there, […]

So much to write about!  It seems like every time I think about sitting down to post, I am overwhelmed with how much has happened and decide to put it off another day.  Where to begin … I suppose I’ll start with the most distressing updates and get to the good stuff after. So, the […]

I forgot to add the pics from Halloween, so here they are!  We went to a party at a friends’ house down the street.  Some friends had given us the little monkey outfit for Lukas, so Andrei and I decided to join him and go as a monkey family.  Pretty silly, but he was so […]

… are among the things we had no use for until recently!  Today, as of 8:30 am, Lukas Timothy Tallent is tube free!  He did so well yesterday, eating between 70 and 100 every feeding, that the doctor in Austria said we could take the tube out early!  So, this morning we pulled off the […]

So, we’re on day 6 of the tube weaning and it is stressful, scary, exciting and hopeful all at once!  They’ve been slowly having us reduce his tube feeds and try to increase his oral intake.  At this point, they’ve had us eliminate all 4 of his daytime tube feeds while still giving him the […]

Lukas is doing great and we’re very excited about some things that are currently in the works.  We’ve been doing a lot of research about how we can get rid of his feeding tube, knowing that the tube itself may be a lot of why he doesn’t drink more from his bottle.  NG tubes, like […]

Hey everyone!  So, we had to change Lukas’ feeding tube the other day and we took the opportunity to get some more pictures.  Some of the pictures are posted below and some are in Andrei’s flickr stream.  You can check those out to the right of this post.  It was so nice to have the […]

We can’t even begin to tell you all how happy we are to have Lukas home.  We are all adjusting well and last night Andrei used his 5-S magic to get Lukas to sleep pretty quickly.  We both got more rest than we have since he came home.  A little swaddling, shushing, swinging and side […]
