Guess My Weight

I won’t make you guess because obviously you are all just as obsessed with Sadie’s weight as I am right? RIGHT? Our nutritionist came by today -and by “our” I mean, Sadie’s because my health is out the fucking window right now and I don’t need someone coming by my house and reminding me of that. The weight was: 14.15.5 oz. basically 15 pounds! Oh hellz yeah. This g-tube is a true turn in the right direction. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still watching her like a hawk and it’s still stressful as all getout to feed her through a tube -it just feels wrong – like there’s something wrong – which there is!! But that’s difficullt to admit. Yet, when the medical intervention yields such beautiful results like a baby who laughs and smiles like a lunatic a lot more often, you can’t help but be greatful that you were willing to admit something was drastically wrong.

That’s all for today. Tomorrow we have a follow-up for her surgery at, naturally, 8:45 in the morning about an hour away (should be a lot less but it’s LA rush hour traffic).

    At some point, the tube gets to be just another way to eat, like wearing glasses or not wearing glasses. Of course no one WANTS their kid to have bad eyes, but yet, you are so glad they are doing better seeing WITH their glasses. Little Man’s tube has just become a part of him, and we are just so glad to see him doing well. We would be over the moon thrilled to have him eat orally on his own some day, but if that day never comes, we shall just be grateful we live here and now. In another time and place, our boy wouldn’t be alive. Grow Sadie GROW!!! Whoo hoo!!!
    Did ya hear they recalled the Infinity pumps???

    Yay! I don’t know if I’ve commented before, but I have been following your blog for a couple months now, and I have to say, I’ve been waiting with baited breath to see how the tube would work. So happy to hear your precious little girl is doing well.

    Thank you for keeping is updated, dude. I’m so happy to hear it’s going well. You need that sort of concrete evidence that you’re helping her.

    (I accidentally typed that in all caps first and it looked completely wack. Wouldn’t it be fun to just yell everything you needed to say for a day?)

    Hurrah for Sadie, and hurrah for you! Keep up the good work – the feeding tube is a necessary evil, and I hope it comes out sooner rather than later, but at least it’s doing its job in the meantime.

    Shade and Sweetwater,

    Awesome! KayTar is up to 32 pounds with hers and we feel such incredible relief. Once the post-op soreness wears off, it’ll start to feel normal and relaxing for you guys.

    I told my husband, “Kids should be born with these things!” He said, “They are…in normal kids it is called a MOUTH.” LOL.
