update on our little guy

Zek is still in the hospital but doing better. The day before yesterday he was transferred back to the first hospital that he was at. The second hospital was a large hospital and the risk for him catching something else while there was high.

He is still on the antibiotics. He is drinking his bottle well.

I hope to hear that he is out of the hospital and back at HH soon. He has been in the hospital for a week now.

We still have concerns for him since one of the doctors had said that there was a mass in his airway. Though, now there is said to be nothing there. Obviously we will have this checked out as soon as we bring him home.

Our pediatrician is looking at his medical records that we received for his stay at the hospital. We are trying to figure out if it is aspiration pneumonia. Which would be from a floppy airway. He could easily get pneumonia if this is the case. We will have to send rice cereal to add to his bottle to help with this. It is where formula leaks down into the lungs because of the floppy airway.

We are having our pediatrician write a letter to try to expedite things after court to try to get him home faster. We dont know if this will push things along, but it is worth a shot.

Thanks for everyones prayers. Please continue to pray for healing for our little Zek. We feel so helpless not being able to be there for him. He is in Gods hands and God is really taking care of him.

Hopefully we will have awesome news soon that he is out of the hospital!!!!
