Feeding Update

Will just took his first tube feed since March 30th without vomiting!! He took the entire feed (5 ounces of Pediasure, applesauce and rice cereal) without getting sick. I think that we are through this cycle!! Yippie!

I am praying he continues to tolerate the feeds and things just keep getting better for you all.

I'm going to keep my fingers crossed a few days, just in case.

Cheers.

Phew! Glad that is over.

I am so sorry that Will has to go through this. :( Trying to find something there to make you smile though... I had to chuckle at the fact it was called "CVS" - how ironic! :)

Glad to hear he was keeping his g-tube feed down and I hope the rest of the week went well. BTW, love the Easter pics on FB. They are awesome!! The outfits are adorable and a great color for all the kids. Kelly F
