So the date of the procedure/surgery has been moved because central scheduling forgot to get confirmation from the GI dept and the surgeon is not available on July 2nd. The date has been sadly moved to September 10th. I have pleaded with all of my sources at CHW to please help me get a sooner apt, but they can’t magically clear a surgeon’s schedule. So we wait.
However, when our speech therapist came over yesterday, we sat little miss Gabi in her high chair and handed her a biter biscuit and she instantly brought it to her mouth and took a bite. After getting passed our initial shock, Sheila and I both cheered her on and laughed. She NEVER puts food in her mouth. Toys, her blanket, fingers, toes go straight to her mouth, but never food. So she was pretty shocked herself when all the sudden she had a crumbly cookie in her mouth. She enjoys tastes of food so much, but once it gets to the back of her mouth, she gags and throws it up. But she did OK with the cookie, she worked through all of the gagging.
I hope everyone is having a nice summer and enjoys their 4th of July! I know we will!!
