More Baby Hayden

I babysat the kids last night so that Kellie & Anthony could go and try to feed Hayden some pumped milk. He did as well as he could and K says he really wants to suck, which is good news. Since the cleft is so mild, they are holding off on any surgery until he's about 1 year old at a minimum. He will most likely have to visit with a speech therapist as he gets older and closer to the surgery, but that's a surmountable goal, all things considered. His breathing is not affected at all, like we thought it was, but he does occasionally have a little grunty growl raspy sound that he makes.

Michael and I are planning on visiting him this weekend since it will still be another week at a minimum before he comes home. In the meantime, his family is doing well and holding up fine; it's a little stressful but they are trying to maintain some normalcy as well as get some much needed sleep while they can!

Until then, thank you so much for all your prayers and well-wishes! We are grateful for all of you and so much more.

Night night,
Kelly
