Chunky Monkey



Look at the chunk on our sweet girl!  :)






Playin’ – She is doing well.  She is only vomiting around three times per shift now.  Ever since her last admission in August, we just can’t seem to get off the oxygen.



In OT we got the OK for therapeutic tastes.  That allows her the tiniest tastes so that when we finally do eat, it won’t be such a shock.  Here she is trying sweet potatoes.  She has also tried some gravy from a pork loin and pickle juice as well as banana, salty residue, and the spray tastes of strawberry and lemon.  I try to be so careful that she gets nothing that was made with gluten because her biological mother and sister are sensitive to gluten.

Look!  Look!  She was doing well enough that we brought her into the living room to watch a movie with the family!  We had some friends over for dinner and a movie that night …and Bella got to join us!!!!  Wahoo!!!


And finally her latest trick.  She is a smart little cookie!  She has figured out how to get the pulse ox sensor off her foot.  She pulls at her sock till she gets that off, then she starts in on her sensor.  Silly baby!  We have to use so much tape these days!  :)
