Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, September 13, 2015
This Sentimental Sunday post was very unexpected.  Yesterday our son, Jeff, texted to let us know that Jessica took Sawyer (14 months old) to the hospital because he was severely dehydrated.  Earlier this week Sawyer has a laser procedure done to correct a tongue-tie and a lip-tie issue that he was born with but that they were unaware of.  Since then he has not wanted to nurse and up until now he has not been able to eat "people" food.  This all led up to the hospital visit today.  They stayed with him overnight and will most likely be able to take him home sometime today.  It was very encouraging to see him liven up when we came and he looked so much better just getting the IV fluids in him.  He even ate his first mashed potatoes!!  Big progress!!  While we were there it was fun to listen as he is trying out new sounds with his freed up tongue and he "almost" stuck his tongue out at me when I prompted him.  So grateful for the amazing care they are giving him at the Children's Hospital.
 Jeff had to work all day so was glad to get some time with his little buddy
 According to Sawyer's Grandpa Weaver, Sawyer is wired for surround sound (a just-in-case precaution)
 Sawyer was heading to bed after we left, but first they need to do stretching "exercises" on his treated area of the mouth so it doesn't grow back.  The doctor that did Sawyers procedure earlier this week called him an anomaly.
  1. something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected: 
    synonyms: oddity · peculiarity · abnormality · irregularity · inconsistency · 

    Because of this issue, Sawyer compensated in how he nursed and never got the total nutrition he needed.  Boy, are we thankful for Doctors who know their business.  Now he is nursing the full time AND starting on table food!!  We should see this little guy grow leaps and bounds now.

    Thanks for stopping by!
