So we’re still challenged to get out littlest guy to eat. He just tuckers out so quickly. It’s sad. We have an appointment with the cardiologist on Wednesday. She was supposed to present his case to the cardiac surgery team to see if we could move forward with surgery. She was thinking the answer would be yes as he isn’t gaining weight anymore. The other option is the feeding tube.
Thankfully, Eli’s spirits are still up and he’s quite playful – when he’s awake! It’s hard to be disappointed that he won’t eat when he gives me this smile!
He did hit his minimum fluid intake yesterday – thanks to the persistence of my awesome hubby! We’re back to needing to get up once or twice in the middle of the night (he started sleeping through the night at one month old!) but whatever it takes we’ll do.
In other good, albeit unrelated news, Eli witnessed his first Seahawks playoff win! He really was very interested in the tv. It could’ve been more that he was interested in what his mommy and daddy were yelling at for the first quarter of the game. Luckily, we have perfected our kid friendly cursing and Cody didn’t learn any new words! Although, he did say “son of a biscuit” (I say that) which cracked me up!
Looks like we may have another diehard football fan in the Harrington fam!
