A Little Food, A Little Formula

Well, since I started the new bolus feeding (one and a half cans during the day time), he began to eat next to nothing. For a few days, he literally had nothing by mouth. Not even a glass of water. Everything was going into the tube. So, to ease my mind, I called the docs Thursday. The plan is to give a half can in the morning, and a half can in the afternoon. So, I tried that yesterday, and he actually had a few bites during dinner and a glass of milk. So, I'm hoping we can find middle ground, where he gets enough formula to gain weight, but not to the point where he can't enjoy any food.

Who knew it could be so complicated to gain weight? G-tube does not equal simplicity!
