Re: Big Victory!

We are on day 6 with no tube feeds. So very excited! He has to take 6.5 ounces 5 times a day, and is more than willing to take it, since he's 3.5 and can be bribed (You can't watch Thomas til its gone... You can't get down from the table til its gone, etc). He's doing great!

Re: Big Victory!

How's he doing with the oral feeds? Still going strong? So proud of a little boy that I've never even met (((hugs)))

Re: Big Victory!

He hasn't used the tube at all! We are doing 7 oz of Peptamin Jr. for breakfast, 4 oz at snack at school, 7 oz for lunch, 7 oz for afternoon snack, 7 oz at dinner, and that's enough for him.

Re: Big Victory!

He's doing great. We had a temporary setback with stomach flu, but have gotten back to 32 oz a day orally. GI is thinking that maybe in June they will pull the tube. I just have to make sure his peptamin will continue to be paid for if we pull it.
