Catherine Update

It still amazes us to look at Catherine and watch her actually eat. After having five typical kids, eating was definitely something I took for granted.

She weighed the same this week, 23 lbs. 13 oz. so we are still keeping the one tube feed around for awhile longer. Yesterday we had a couple of firsts. She ate a whole piece of toast with butter and melted cheese, usually she eats just half. This morning she ate a whole piece of peanut butter toast. Yesterday she ate red beans and rice, and she let me spoon feed her most of it! I'm guessing she was feeling sorry for me trying to finger feed it, messy! Last week she started showing slightly more interest in the cup. She actually leaned forward, mouth open, and let me put it in her mouth, but no drinking yet. Slow steady progress.

Thanks for your continued prayers and support! We pray for all of you.

Clearly the tube weaning program was the right move. It will be great when she can just eat and no tubes. I guess eventually they'll remove the implant?
