Medical Update

We went to GI yesterday and got the good news that Abby is gaining weight and is actually in the 50th percentile for height and weight!  (Remember, our GI wants everyone to be in the 50th percentile!!)  So, we got the okay to get rid of another gtube feed during the day!  Woo hoo!  As long as she continues to eat well by mouth and gain weight, our GI is okay with it!

I also requested that we switch the one remaining feed to overnight so that Abby is completely free from tubes during the day.  I think it will really be a good thing for Abby to enjoy a little more freedom.  Now, Abby's feed will run overnight from 10p-6a.

Going to all night feeds is a huge step for Abby...from here on out, we cut from the night and get closer and closer to no more gtube feeds!  Go Abs!!!

Also, in case you're wondering about the glasses, Abby is doing a whole lot better about keeping them on.  I am working on getting her to hand them to me when she doesn't want to wear them anymore, but I'm okay if she puts them down on the table.  What we don't want is for her to throw them on the floor, which results in a time out!  But she is definitely doing much better and is keeping them on for several hours at a time.  She's definitely wearing them at least 50% of the time, and I would say possibly even 75%!  Thanks for the encouragement!  :)
