The doctor on Friday wasn't extremely helpful. He can get off the feeding tube when he takes 120 mL at each feeding (for now, this number will increase as he gains weight). He doesn't know how to get him to eat, we have to see a Speech Therapist that specializes in feeding to work with him and they don't know of any to refer me to except the ones at Children's Hospital and Inova. He upped his Zantac from 1 mL twice a day to 1.5 mL twice a day.
Today he decided that he's not that interested in the bottle again. However he did use the bottle twice today and took 2 ounces each time. Again though, this was after a lot of coaxing to try and get him to take it. It's very frustrating though. He hasn't thrown up since we upped his Zantac though, which is great! We shall see what happens. So tomorrow I am going to try some magic to get him to take the bottle again.
Tomorrow morning the boys are going to go to the food store with me to finish shopping for Thanksgiving. I still need to get the produce. Tonight I started the prepping by dicing the dried apricots for the stuffing. Tomorrow night I have to chop up the produce for the stuffing and make the cranberry sauce. The fun begins!
