Guess who ate a tablespoon of custard today???
It may have taken about 30 spoon fulls to get the tablespoon into her but it's a start!
One of the biggest differences in Ashlea since the transplant has been in regards to feeding. She can just tolerate her feeds so easily at the moment - she has NEVER been like that. She has not gagged ONCE since she has been home from hospital - usually she would gag on nearly every feed.
While she has a steroid-fuelled appetite we are going to try and push her a bit with actual eating. I figure it is now or never to try oral eating so we are giving it a shot - starting with the only thing she has ever tried to eat before - custard.
I think her energy level is better since the transplant too. She has always had a pretty chirpy personality but I think she is even chirpier. Possibly more talkative (although she was already pretty chatty). Definitely bossier. And perhaps even a smidgeon taller.
It's very exciting to see these changes. I can't wait to see how she goes when she gets back to school!
