Good Times (really!)

So Amelia had a barium swallow x-ray test on Thursday. It was inconclusive.

However, she has drastically reduced her throwing up since Thursday afternoon. Yea! Rather than throwing/spitting up around 40 or 50 times a day, it's only happening two or three times a day. Yippee! There had been talk of more invasive tests or even a feeding tube, so we're so thrilled and grateful that things seem to be looking up (or staying down, I guess). We'll do a weight check later this week, but we're expecting some weight GAIN this time. Hurray!

We're confident she'll gain weight if she can get the cheerios into her mouth...instead of onto her chin or forehead!

Finally, I promised pictures of Abby once her new packback arrived. Here's the pack, fully loaded with buttons and keychains and a kitty emblem.

And here's the pack actually mounted on Abby, the only fourth grader who has braces!

Oh Im so glad to hear about her progress. That is such good news. Let's hope this continues.

Lory, it was really great seeing you the other day with your precious Amelia. We'll do it again! Can't wait to hang out at the IAN picnic.
