One Week Later

A week post-cath and everything is pretty much back to normal around here. Feeding is still a struggle, but the nutritionist at CHOP gave us some good ideas about ways to boost her caloric intake. I have requested that Early Intervention send a feeding specialist as part of Abby's services to help us out in this area. We could use some new ideas.

One of the big concerns we have about Abby's development is the fact that she won't bear any weight on her legs. Bryan got out the good ol' Jumperoo to see if she would use it and maybe build up some leg strength. She LOVES it. She's not as crazy in it as Anna was, but she has a blast jumping away. Here she is:

On a more somber note, a good friend has just learned that her two year old has cancer. If you could please remember Ben in your prayers, I know his family would appreciate it.

I'm so glad Abby is continuing to do so well. I hope the EI services give her a little boost. She's so cute.

I can't find your email address - I've got a whole document I put together of high-cal recipes for our little ones. I'd gladly send it your way!

Sammy's favorite around Abby's age was this avocado, chick pea, cream cheese and garlic mash that I made. Talk about calories and fat - oy! But it's what they need, right?

I will pray for Ben and for your friend. Abby looks adorable in the jumperoo!

Alison - I am not sure if you remember me, (Jen, Ryan's Mommy) but I have been thinking about you for so long! I am so glad to see that Abby is doing well - she is just as cute as can be and is SO strong, just like her mommy, daddy and big sis.
