Step Right Up


And see the amazing pig-boy!

Yep, that's right, ladies and gentlemen. Right here, we have a phenomenon of the greatest magnitude--once a child, now a pig. How did this amazing transformation occur? Books. That's right, folks, books!

So suffice it to say our new eating system is working well. Dakin put down 30.5 ounces of food while he was awake the other day, and another 10 while sleeping. That was the most so far, but his average has been very high.

Besides the obvious elation over getting to say 'nanny nanny boo boo' to the nutritionist, we are thrilled about this because hopefully next time we go to vent clinic there will be no more inpatient feeding program talk.

In addition, his eating well has fixed another problem. He had been having some pretty regular constipation, but since he upped the table food it has almost ceased to be a problem. I was starting to get worried that the constipation was part of his disorder--intestinal musculature degenerating--but apparently not.

Yay.

So get your tickets now and see the pig-boy. Might be your only opportunity!
