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 […]

Lukas was sent to the gastroenterologist today to test for reflux, which it turns out he has.  This may be the reason for the pneumonia he’s currently battling.  They’ve stopped giving him breast milk to give his digestive system a rest.  For now, they’re feeding him through an IV.  He currently has two IVs in […]
