Quick Update

Catherine continues to do well without any nutrition via her tube. Her weight still remains the same, so that's good. Hopefully in the not so distant future we'll see some weight gain! She saw her GI doctor earlier this week and this is the first time he's seen her since her wean. He was very concerned about her BMI (height to weight ratio), which is in the 16th percentile. I think he was concerned about the drop in percentile, not the actual percentile. About a year ago she was in the 90th percentile in the BMI chart (overweight!). Anyway, I'm going to fire him. He threatened starting up tube feeds again if she doesn't start going up on the chart. He didn't say ONE thing about her actually eating now! Not, "Wow, that's great!" Nothing positive or encouraging. The only thing he said was "Well, her BMI has dropped". Very rarely have I felt like hitting a doctor, but I did that day (felt like it, that is! I didn't actually do it). The only positive thing he did was say we could stop the prevacid. So I've done that and she is doing fine without. The only medication she is on now is Miralax!

Thank you for all your continued prayers for us! We pray for you.
