I Think It's Time To Sleep, Finally.

Tommy's swallow study was today. I am in awe of how great our Heavenly Father is, and what he has done for me today. He gave me such a beautiful gift. Today, 15 months after he was born, I watched Tommy swallow effectively for the first time. Yes, he swallowed. Without any significant aspirating.

My body is so tired, so keyed up. I am ready to fall asleep, but Matthew and Brandon are still awake and I have to wash a load of clothes for Rob. I feel like I have been emotionally wrung out. I haven't slept in a month because of all the stress worrying about Tommy.

We're not out of the woods yet, but I can see the way out.

Oh Rene... how awesome that Tommy swallowed for the first time!!!!! PROGRESS! I know... baby steps... but it's progress!

I have been having a terrible time sleeping too. I hope we can both get some sleep soon.

*it's 3:25 here and I still haven't gotten any sleep.*

((hugs))
