Eating Camp Day 8

Today was a better day. They have made another change in his drinking. He wasn't taking to the cup like they'd hoped he would so they decided to do something different. For right now, they're giving him milk or some "drink" with a spoon during his meals. In the mean time, they are going to go BACK to the Honey Bear but not have anything in it and work just on getting him to open his mouth and let the straw go in. Then we'll work our way up from there. I think this is a good move because now he can get more food. His volume was way up today because he wasn't wasting his time with the drinking trouble. They just want to be careful not to add any more aversion to drinking than he already has so they are backing up and going slow. I will meet with the team tomorrow to hopefully get an overall update on goals/plans/progress. 2 kids left today and both of them were only here 4 weeks. What if we only have to stay 4 weeks???!!!!! I'm not going to get my hopes up, but that would be so great.

I saw my Dr. today and everything went really good. He did a detailed ultrasound and the baby looked great and my cervix looked GREAT. Sorry I talk so much about my cervix on here. Its kind of a big deal right now. In fact, everything looked so good that he said he didn't think he needed to see me again for a month. I said, "ummm that makes me really nervous!" So he laughed and said that i can come back in 2 weeks. I am going to bed tonight feeling very good about things. We hit 28 weeks today, the baby is currently kicking like a crazy monster, and I got the all clear from the doc!! Thank you for your prayers...keep em comin!
