It's gone pretty well so far! The first night Dakin ate a whole mess of chicken parm I had ground up and all of his milk. He did great on Saturday, eating 8 whole ounces (4 PediaSure, 4 potato soup), which he has never done. I was a little worried on Sunday, as he didn't eat any of his table food for dinner, but he did wake up in the middle of the night and ate 4 ounces for the nurse (which shocked me, since he hardly ever eats for anyone but Mommy), and he ate 8.5 ounces for lunch today. Potato soup again...he seems to like potatoes...lolol.
We're feeling optimistic at the moment, since we were convinced that we would have to drop the tube again on Friday. He's eating better now than he ever did with that idiot tube down his throat. He does, however, have some sort of infection that resembles thrush, and so we're hoping that it won't affect him too much. Keep your fingers crossed!!!! He was always beautiful, but he is so much more so without that stupid tube!
