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, […]

Home!

As of yesterday morning, we are home from the hospital!  The surgery went well and we noticed an immediate difference in the fullness of his soft spot after the surgery, so it is clear that the fluid is already draining.  Lukas had some nausea and vomiting for the first twelve hours or so after the […]

So, we decided to go ahead with the shunt surgery and it is scheduled for Friday, March 4 at 12:15 pm.  We weren’t expecting it to get scheduled so quickly, but it’s definitely better to get it done with.  The actual surgery will take about 45 minutes, but he will probably have to be in […]

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 […]

I know, it’s been far too long since our last update!  We spend so little time at home these days, that it’s been hard to find time to post.  Lukas has been having a tough time lately.  For about the past week, he’s often seemed quite uncomfortable when taking his bottle, arching his back and […]

It’s been three weeks since we took out Lukas’ feeding tube and he just keeps doing wonderfully!  At this point, he is drinking around 150-170 mls each time and is often able to drink in about 35-45 minutes instead of the hour it used to take.  He is also gaining weight well!  He’s gained about […]

… 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 amazing!

And the new record is 93!  He’s just eating away like crazy!  We’re so proud of him and ready to take the tube out on Friday!  He can do this!
