As most of you know, Robbie has had a feeding tube since he was a year old. We’ve met with therapists since that time and have done everything we know how to do to encourage him to eat. At 3-years old, we have not had the success we would have hoped for.
Our family has moved back to Baltimore in order for Robbie to complete an 8-week Intensive Feeding Therapy clinic at Kennedy Krieger Hospital.
His first day is tomorrow. We are nervous, but hopeful.
Robbie and I will be gone for the majority of the day, and Rob will work from home with Andy boy.
He will have 3 feeds a day and work with a large team to hopefully teach him the skills he needs to learn to eat (chewing, swallowing, etc).
Every week I am going to post updates on his progress that will (for my sanity) likely include a small dose of complaining/sarcasm/snark (within reason).
If ever there was a time to pull all of our faith, prayer and efforts, it is now.
So check back with me each week or subscribe to the blog to keep up with his progress.
Maybe this will be the Halloween that he can indulge in his first piece of chocolate!
