For the next few weeks, I'll be writing a foodoir as Annie begins intensive feeding therapy. We've been warming her up the last few weeks with the carrots, apples, Pirate's Booty, big Cheez-its, and Cheetos her nurse offers her each day at lunch. She's tasting, biting and licking, but not doing a whole lot of chewing and swallowing. That will come later...
...when we pull out all the stops and she begins eating remediation. Feasting 101. Exploring your inner foodie. Starting November 1st, check in here for the latest on dining with Annie. You will get a blow by blow of every morsel and crumb that goes past her teeth. Never thought that eating could be such a big deal, huh? My goal is that by Thanksgiving, she'll be fighting her brothers for a piece of pumpkin pie. Now that would be something to be thankful for!
Please be praying for no seizures, and for her happy cooperation with the team who will lead us in this gastronomic adventure.
