Man oh man can Bodie eat! Our discharge instructions were for him to eat at least 55-60cc's (2oz) every 2-3 hours. He's already up to 90-100cc's (3oz) every 2 hours! I do fear we've created an emotional eater. ;-) Every time he's awake, he's looking for something to eat - it's so funny! (It's mostly funny because it's pretty rare for a single ventricle kid to like to eat a lot to begin with (it's probably the biggest challenge with single ventricle kids), let alone when they have to eat thickened substances.) But Bodie's definitely the anomaly - he absolutely loves to eat. He's happiest with the bottle in his mouth! And when he's hungry, everyone hears about it (well, as much as everyone can hear considering he only has one working vocal chord)! Just like Sierra, he snorts when he's mad and hungry. And his eating is showing - at his pediatrician's appointment today, he had gained a whopping 9oz since his appointment just a week ago! Go Bodie!!! What an answer to prayer!
Thanks for all of your prayers for Sierra - she is doing much better (fever lasted less than 24 hours, thankfully - and Bodie hasn't caught it yet!
We haven't heard yet about the potential abdominal mass - we have an ultrasound scheduled for Friday morning. Please keep praying that the ultrasound reveals no mass.
Thank you prayer warriors!
