Saturday, March 31

What's new with Annie today? Well, we started back on the enteral formula "lite" yesterday. Tastes great, less filling, and--no throwing up.

Her occupational therapist, Beth, suggested yesterday that Annie spend more time on her tummy, to strengthen her back and shoulder muscles. So we had some tummy time this morning and then we practiced standing. She is gaining more coordination in her standing, and I barely have to hold her up. She seems to have grown alot in two months, too--she is so tall! That formula must have Miracle-Gro in it.

Bill & I strolled her around the neighborhood this afternoon. Getting out is good for her and for us, and as long as it's not pouring buckets of rain, we'll walk a lot.

This morning I was thinking about being content with each day, and God brought to mind the verse, "This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24 Jesus referred to this verse (Matthew 21:42) after he entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, which is tomorrow, the beginning of Passion Week.

Jean

The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:22-24

I'm so glad she's keeping her meals down, Jean. That is a huge praise. You are such an amazing advocate for her with the feeding issues and everything else. Take care. See you soon. xxoxooGretchen
