Charlotte started getting her appetite sometime around Wed. evening, thankfully. Unfortunately this illness/diarrhea from the formula that she wasn't tolerating well set her back quite a bit. She was seen at her Endocrinologists office on Thurs. and weighed in at 16# even. She had gotten up to 17# 9 oz...so we are hoping it comes back quickly.
We are so glad to see her have an appetite again, even better than before she had her tube placed. She has been switched back to soy formula, and so far the diarrhea has stopped!! YEAH!! And she is more interested in our food. She has had bread, lunch meat, chicken & banana bread, and has only gagged 2 times, no vomiting. Not to mention the record amounts she has been taking in during the day. Yesterday, she took in 17 1/2 ounces by mouth, and today, we began using her tube again during the day, and giving her a bottle before bed, and we got in a whopping 20 oz. Go CHARLOTTE! Hopefully this will continue. We are just so thrilled that she has an interest in food again. We stocked up her pantry with all kinds of stuff to try.
We hope everyone has a nice Easter. If this keeps up, it is the best Easter I could ever imagine.
