Taylor has been diagnosed with a weak esophagus and milk and possibly soy allergies. The flap to the windpipe does not close as fast as necessary, and if he cannot hold down his food-for whatever reason, he aspirates the fluid. That's why he couldn't breathe. His parents will be trained in CPR, and he will be put on a sleep apnea monitor, which will awaken them if he stops breathing. He will be in the hospital until the doctors are sure they have covered all the bases. I fear this will be an on-going problem. Please remember him in your prayers. Thank all of you for your care.
