lost weight

Gabriel had his weekly speech therapy appointment yesterday. He went from 15lbs 15oz to 15lbs even. He lost a whole 15oz in a week. Grr! Out therapist is calling the doctors office each week with Gabriel's weight. I will be calling this afternoon to schedule an appointment. I have a feeling we are behind on childhood shots as well so we might as well go in and discuss what is going on.

The only thing that has been different this last week is that we are not putting thickener in Gabriel's bottles. He has to work a little harder. He is still drinking the same amount of fluid. When there is no thickener in the bottles the calorie content is higher. We are trying some different things with his bottles in hope that he gains weight this week. We will see. I really do not want a replay of April when Gabriel spent a week at Devos because he lost so much weight.

Gabriel doesn't seem to be bothered by losing weight. He is still as active as he always is. Hopefully it doesn't bother him and he can gain it back quickly.

Gabe is doing okay. His back is still hurting. He is still getting shooting pain down his leg and numbness. We see the doctor Tuesday next week so we will see what he has to say.
