I was born with a right-sided Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. This blog follows my journey from birth, to surgery and my recovery.

I know its been a while since I have updated and to be honest alot has been going on...Gabriel is going better and we had a pretty good August and September. His major issues seem to be feeding, and he continues to get his milk through the G-tube. He isn't talking much by bottle but the good thing is that he doesn't seem to have an oral aversion. He sucks on his pacifier and puts stuff in his mouth. Our major focus is on him gaining weight with the hope that it will make him stronger. He is almost 15lbs and has started eating cereal. They are small steps but they are small steps foward to which we are thankful.
He did give us some scares during these past two months and he even got a slight pneumonia a couple of weeks ago, but thankfully he did not have to be hospitalized and hopefully that is past him. The funny thing is that Dad and Big Sister Demi have had as many trips to the Emergency room/Doctors' Office than Gabriel. We both got mosquito bites that got infected and all swollen. I guess when it rains it pours.
