George Update

on April 15, 2015

George is doing much better with eating. And the great news is that now he done with the feeding specialists! He was seeing the foremost doctor on infantile anorexia in the country, Dr. Chatoor, along with a GI doc and a nutritionist. But no more (unless he regresses)! He has gotten back on his growth curve and is getting enough calories between food and the ‘heavy duty milk’ (whole milk with pediasure powder, which is about 50 calories per ounce).

While every meal is still tough, we have implemented some changes recommended by the team that have made these easier. And the good news is, he should pretty much grow out of it, though the doctor emphasized to us that he will probably never be a big eater.

And on our way out of our last appointment, we got to see Dr. Bear! George loves anything in a costume, so this was a very special treat. Dr. Bear was SO nice with him and George was elated! Then we went for a quick lunch. Which, even with our good news, was a reminder of his issues. He ate that green apple, but I had to (futility) push the pizza. Sigh. 😉
