Malakai's update via Rita

Carah and Malakai were sent up to Riley on Monday due to Malakai running a temperature. Initially it was thought he might have an ear infection, but that was quickly ruled out. After blood and urine tests, nothing of real significance was found, but he was still experiencing some not so wonderful, vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, etc. The doctors have indicated that they believe he has some sort of a stomach bug, but that it has hit him harder than it would most babies due to his compromised immune system. They are treating the symptoms right now, hoping that he will regain his appetite soon. They are waiting for him to remain fever free, and resume breastfeeding/table foods before he will be discharged. So, like always, we wait...
