So Far, So Good

We had our second day of Eating Therapy today and Joshua really responded well. He seems to like is therapist and is willing to "work" for her. He hadn't had too much trouble eating the easy things, but now we're off to the tougher stuff. Joshua's condition limits his diet of course. His GI would love for him to eat lots of meats. That has been harder for us. He can do deli slices of turkey, but chicken and beef throw him a curve ball. Tomorrow we're working on chicken strips, with breading. Maybe something like meatloaf next week? Or stew. Stew sounds good!

At any rate, it's time to sit down with Joshua's Dietician & GI to see if his higher rate in feeds (we're at a whopping 47 ml/hr!) and increase in oral intake will bring about a decrease in TPN soon. It's what we've been praying for.
