Feeding update

Raegan has been eating a little better. Yesterday she ate fine, and today she has had so trouble. I called the doctor yesterday and they have started her on a new medication. I am hoping that this new medication is going to help. I will let you all know if a few days. For now we are going to offer her a bottle and what she doesn't eat we will be putting it down her feeding tube.


Is being made today.... For all republications, Democrats, people that voted, didn't vote, people who don't care.... We are all going to watch history being made today. In 1964 Martin Luther King was speaking with BBC's Bob McKenzine prodicting that we would have a black president "in less than 40 years". Needless to say he or Obama was off by 4 years. I found a video from today, here is a few words from Obama:

"My fellow citizens:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents."

We have had a busy week. Monday Raegan had a follow up appointment with the neurosurgeon and an MRI to make sure her shunt was working. The doctor gave us the green light, he said things look great and we wont have to see them for a year. I was very excited to get such great news.

Thursday Raegan had a doctors appointment to get her RSV shot. She also decided that she was not going to eat all day. We went back to the doctors later that night and they increased the dosage of the reflux medication that she takes. So she ate a total of 7oz on Thursday. Friday we went back to the doctors to make sure everything was alright. They said that she didn't look sick, and if she didn't eat very well over the weekend to call the feeding specialist on Monday. All weekend she really has not ate very good. Tonight after not really eating all day I tried to get her to eat and she wouldn't. I knew that she was hungry so I had to put the feeding tube back in. Tomorrow morning when I get up I will be calling the doctors so we can get Raegan in for an upper GI to make sure everything is working and to maybe get her on some different medication and see if that helps.

So for tonight, I am going to get some sleep. It has been a long week, and I have another long week ahead.

Follow the directions on the box for making the brownies and pour into a greased 13 X 9 pan.

Make the cookie mix as directed on the pouch and drop by rounded tablespoons into the brownie batter. You'll want to press the dough down lightly.
