Andi's eating really well, and I've started a food journal to showcase what she's been eating orally, when, and if/when she spits up. She's been spitting up more, just like she did early in the week last week. Don't know if that's getting used to the new medicine, a digestion issue, gas build-up from eating orally, her cold and its post-nasal drip, or maybe the food is too rich. Maybe if the GI specialist got off their duff and got us in to see them, we could start to narrow down that list of options. I'm usually a patient person, but I'm starting to lose patience waiting on them.
I've figured out a few things on her oral feeds. I used to think that when she stopped opening her mouth, she was done. However, I've come to find that if I give her a minute or two, she'll start up again. Or, if I give her a couple sips of water, she'll start back up on the food. I've also been trying to offer up more than one flavor too. So, she seems to be eating more volume for me now, she's definitely eager. She sits up well in her new high chair.
So, we'll go see the Dr. again on Monday and see how her weight is doing. I'll bring her food journal and my denial, and we'll see what he concludes. If she does move back in, maybe I'll get one of our plush suites, so that I can stay with my Bean too. I can't imagine not hearing that chatterbox all day, or getting those first morning smiles. I think only a New Orleans mini-break can separate me from my Andi Bean.
