It has been a while

Life surely has changed in the Halcomb house. You would think I would have more time, but alas, tis not true. Lillian has been doing great. (til today she woke with a 100.00 fever and vomiting..trying not to fret...) She has just exploded into this wild child. She is into absolutely EVERYTHING! There are days I spend just keeping her out of the trash. She is doing so much more physically, it is just amazing. I really just didn't realize how much that tiny piece of plastic interfered with her day to day. I think it is record breaking how long she has gone without puking through feeds. We are trying more and more different foods and such by mouth to try to get her eating. She will chew solids to mush but just will not swallow. She does great with liquids, but not solids. Anyone out there got any tips??
She is almost able to run is too cute. We are scheduled for her IEP on Monday with the school system, but the closer it gets the more I am leaning towards not sending her and just seeking indepedent therapies at other agencies. This is becoming a very difficult decision for me to make. Matt really does not weigh in too much on this subject. It is hard to know what the best/right decision is for her. I'm leary of making the wrong choice.

As I type, she is in the kitchen messing around, so I have to cut this short...will update soon.


  1. About Time!!!!!! That was way too long between posts! I can't believe how great Lillian is doing. She sounds like a completely different child.
    Is it that she can't figure out how to swallow solids? Or is it just not possible for her too. How about something with the consistency of a shake or smoothie.

  2. Glad to hear that she is doing so well! I bet this change is definitely a great one, even if she is driving you mad getting into everything! I pray that she continues to do well! HUGS!

  3. So glad to hear from you again! I was just thinking this morning that I should talk to you on FB and make sure things in your world are still upright. Glad you beat me to the punch!

    Glad to hear that Lillian is doing so well. I will be praying for your girls to get better soon and for everyone else in the house to stay well.

  4. Ugh, thats such a hard decision. You want them to get the social but your afraid of your medically fragile child being in a classroom. You'll make the right decision.

  5. It sounds like she's keeping you busy! I'm so happy for you that she has more energy and is slowing down on the vomiting. Hallelujah! It's such a tough decision on what's best for our little one's and school. I hope it works out for you.

  6. So happy to hear that she is doing well! As for wrong choices, no one is prescient, and usually a wrong choice can be replaced with a better choice.
