Ahava Update and Photos
Eating is still somewhat of a challenge, but things are actually improving! We will go see the Gastrointestional doctor in 2 weeks and trust that he will be able to help Ahava's reflux get under control and adjust her calories or her fortifier so that she will be able to digest it better. Her main doctor increased her reflux medicine for the time being and it has been a night and day difference! She is eating more and even keeping down more food! So we are pleased with the progress she is making. I know that she is healthy and she is growing and I have to keep in mind that THIS is the Truth even when we have bad days or I begin to fear. I have had some amazing support lately getting through this challenge and have been releasing this issue to the Lord every day.
(As you may have noticed, we have been calling her Ahava lately instead of Micah. Ahava was given to her by a VERY dear friend during our pregnancy. The name is Hebrew and means "Beloved" or "my Love." As we have entered into this new season of our journey, it just feels more fitting to call her this, although we do still call her Micah sometimes as well. So if you have been calling her Micah, you are welcome to continue to do so, or you may start calling her Ahava!)
