Joe became a little fish this weekend...we all went swimming at Lynn and Matt's hotel. We also went to the zoo, which was amazing. The polar bear exhibit is really neat, and the kids enjoyed riding the tram (train) around at the end. Overall, Joseph was in a euphoric state all weekend and had a lot of fun with cousin Will. There were lots of smiles and running and playing and it was great to visit with family. Thanks for coming to brighten our weekend, Lynn and Matt and Will!
Joseph still has no appetite, but we were able to feed him his 1200 calories each day...so hopefully his weight will not have dropped and the doctors will be happy with his eating. They weigh him today so we will find out soon. We considered putting rocks in his pockets but decided against it. :) Please keep praying for him to get his appetite back soon. It is much nicer when he actually wants to eat. We might try another appetite stimulant since the current one is not working.
The first pictures are after a trip to the mall with Daddy, where Joseph discovered an appetite for "Mike 'n Ikes." It gave us an extra 190 cals for the day, so we were thrilled. I never thought I would be begging my child to eat ice cream and cookies!
**Added note: I just talked to Allen and Joe gained almost a kilo! Yay!! Thank you all for praying.
