This boy


Can I tell you something about this boy?  We're weaning him off his feeding tube.

I haven't dared say anything, but in about the past 3 weeks, he's only been tube fed a handful of times.  Martin has a tendency to realize someone said something about him, and then do the exact opposite, as if to prove that he's the one in charge and he will not follow anyone's standards set for him.

It made the NICU journey that much harder.

If you're a praying person, could you say a prayer for us?  Or send positive thought vibes our way that his weight is maintained at his weight-check tomorrow? And that his appetite will increase and he'll try more foods?  This is really the last big hurdle for this boy right now, and it scares his mama!!

It makes me so happy to see the pictures you post of him and think how far he has come! We were all scared with you in the beginning. This is such great news.

Go Martin! There is so much good food to try (especially with your mum at the helm in the kitchen).

Best of luck, lots of alfredo and whatever else he will eat. Crackers with frosting? Donuts, you should try donuts. Sweet potato donuts, oh yum.
