Introducing Anna's First Fat Roll

Do you think a week will ever exist when both of my children are well? Last week it was Anna's ear infection and this week it's Carly's bladder infection. They have both been troopers though, especially Carly who has even taken 3AM trips to Wal-Mart with me when her fever hit 104 and we were out of Motrin. Isn't it just like a man to not tell you he used the last of the Motrin and you discover it at 3AM and he volunteers to stay with the baby and sleep while you get up and dressed and go on a shopping trip? Oh well, he tries. I can't gripe too much. He is a wonderful husband and father and he can't help those things which genetics prevent men from "getting." We had a great neurologist visit last week. We were told that kids just don't go from high tone to near normal tone but that is what Anna has done. With good nutrition and an awesome God who heard our cries and answered our prayers it looks like our little girl will be able to overcome most, if not all, of the obstacles she has faced in her life. We couldn't be happier. We have also begun to finally see good weight gain in Anna on the Elecare. She finally has a fat roll on her legs!!!! I knew all along she was not getting enough nutrition but I had no idea what a difference it could make. She still only takes about 4 oz at a time but it is 4 oz she can process and use. Please keep your prayer engines running, it appears it is working...
