She loves to eat!

It's been 4 weeks since we arrived in Seattle, 2 weeks since we've been home, and I know she'll never go back now. This girl asks to eat constantly. She's made a breakthrough this past weekend and will eat almost anything I offer her. I make a food record once a week to send to Karen, and I'll just post it here and let it speak for itself. She ate this yesterday:

1/2 slice of toast with butter
3 Tablespoons of scrambled eggs
taste of yogurt
4 jumbo raisins
1 cup of popcorn
2 blueberries
1.5 cups of puff corn
1/2 slice of bread with almond butter
1/3 of a banana
20 veggie straws
1/2 vienna sausage
5 bites of avocado
2 bites of grilled cheese sandwich
3/4 of a Nutragrain cereal bar
1 whole cheese stick!
5 pieces of canned peach
11 bunny grahams

She gained 4 oz. from last week and now weighs 23# 13 oz. She is on one tube feed at bedtime and water boluses during the day.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Catherine...she is doing great!
