Day One

We had three appointments through the day to work on feeding. The first two went pretty much like they do at home. I offer the food, Annie throws it on the floor. Actually, she did taste the apple twice. Under duress. We taped it so they could document her progress, and to brainstorm ways to overcome her charming behavior. Actually, there are times at school with nurse Patty and at home with me that she IS cooperative and does taste food. Today just wasn't one of those days.

The last appointment was to nail down how/when we'll titrate her calories down. Typically, when you've cut kid's formula calories in half, that's when their appetite kicks in and they begin to be interested in eating. We're going slowly so that we don't add undue stress to her system, but not so slow that she doesn't make progress.

Please pray that Annie stays healthy, and that the therapists have wisdom in everything. This is a group effort--and I appreciate your work in prayer!


Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted to us in answer to the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1:11b

Poolip - that was my word means "this food tastes like poo so I'm going to spit it out my lip."

There is a God. He gets the biggest kick out of word verifications.

I am praying that Annie doesn't poolip her food ;-)
