The doctors decided to give Dylan a chance with gastric feeds. It has been going great so far...no spit ups and everything is moving along nicely. We are thrilled and hope this will lead to him finally taking a bottle or just nursing. They are thinking he wont be able to suck and swallow properly and even if he is able to they don't think he will have the strength to take in the amount necessary for weight gain. So therefor a gtube would need to be placed in the stomach. We hope and pray this is not something that will be needed.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers. God Bless.
