|Today's topic: I blog because...|
Today, we got great news from the dietician. Silas is clear to go another month without using his feeding tube. Our little guy has been eating yogurt, burgers, eggs, ice cream, sandwiches, and cookies like a starving child.
I started to blog years ago because I was pregnant with my third son and was terrified of going through another NICU stay with another sick baby. I knew there were issues in my heart that needed to be healed up before I was ready to deliver another child.
I continued to blog exclusively about Silas and my life as a special-needs mother for several years. Now I've expanded and blog about writing, faith, and life in general in addition to special needs, but I'll probably always have a tender place in my heart for the years when I blogged to keep our family and friends up to date on Silas and his medical condition. He's doing so well now that there's not all that much to report, but it's on days like today when I'm glad I have this blog - not only to connect with friends, get feedback on my current writing projects, and share what's on my mind - but to keep everyone up to date on the happenings in the life of a little boy named Silas.
Random Fact: Silas met a newborn baby the other day who has a feeding tube like his. He was pretty excited to see another double belly button!
