A Hollow Leg Day

Cameron:
Breakfast -
5oz of whole milk
4oz of yogurt

Morning Snack - 
6 goldfish crackers
4oz of juice (watered down)

Lunch -
6oz of juice (watered down)
3 cheese puff curls (13 calories each!!)
3 pretzel sticks
4oz of stage 2 puree

Afternoon Snack -
2oz of water
4 pretzel sticks

Dinner -
5oz of whole milk
4oz of stage 2 puree
Self-fed 1 1/2 table spoon of diced macaroni & cheese (solid just like Mommy eats)
Self-fed 1 teaspoon of carrots steamed in beef stew

Evan:
Breakfast -

5oz of whole milk
3oz of yogurt

Morning Snack - 

2oz of juice (watered down)


Lunch -
6+oz of juice (watered down)
licked 1 cheese puff curls to a soggy pulp
3oz of stage 2 puree

Afternoon Snack -
2oz of water



Dinner -
5oz of whole milk
2.5oz of stage 2 puree
Self-fed and spit out several pieces of solid diced macaroni & cheese without freaking out

Not too shabby.  Why is this so remarkable?  Because all of the afternoon food was consumed in under 30minutes and was feed to the boys by their therapists with no involvement from me or Granny Cathy.  For the first time ever the boys HAPPILY let someone other than us and the feeding clinic staff feed them and consumed their full meal plus extra all on their own direction.  As my good friends Trish & Becky would say, it's been kind of a hollow leg day.

O.M.G.!!!!!!!!
HOLY crapola!
WOW!

Do you think it's the drug?? Are you decreasing the tube feedings? OMG!!

Laura said...

Annie, yes, it's definitely related to the new meds. And yes, I decreased their tube feedings by 50mls. If this continues or increases I'll decrease another 50mls next week too.

How exciting! We love Hollow leg days at our house, and it sounds like your guys had a super day. How fantastic that they are letting someone else feed them too. What great news!
