Huge steps toward Tubelessness :)

Sorry for the cheezy video.... but we are so excited Mr. Boy is eating!!! The doctors just said he may just have trouble eating and swallowing till school age since he's been vomiting continually for so long, but October came and all of the sudden Mr. Boy decided to swallow and eat! And on top of all that, his 7 month streak of vomiting about 8 times a day, ended at the same time!  Thank you Lord! The vomiting is unrelated to his actual condition, which only added to the frustrations, confusion and questions of "why is this happening??" The feeding tube sends food directly to his intestines so he couldn't throw it up and the plan was to keep it in until the vomiting subsided. Well we are finally making a plan with the doctors to get this tube out!!! They said we will take it slowly by decreasing the amount of food from the tube while increasing his oral feedings to see how much he will take, but I am ready to rip it out today! :) Now I don't have to worry about what will happen when Mr. Boy begins to roll, crawl, or walk with a long cord coming from his face attached to a pole... as much as I wanted him to be mobile, I wasn't ready to start that chapter. We'll keep you posted on the progress. Thank you all for your prayers, the Lord is listening! 

Psalm 28:7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

Psalm 30:11
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
   you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
   LORD my God, I will praise you forever.
