Because We Love Her

Saturday 13th, Sept.

Yes.  Better today she is.  No fever, just a stuffy nose which is still difficult if you have a tube….old news here, yes?

What surprises me most, being the mother is this.  She told her Dr. last night.  “I dont feel hungry”.  She doesnt have the sensation of hunger, EVER.  She eats because “I’m supposed to.” “I cant remember the last time I felt hungry” said Chloe.

I find this sad.  Let us all send her the “I’m feeeling hungry” thoughts,bug or what-have-you.

Good news?  She made the scales say “I weigh 57 lbs ” yesterday.  This is one pound below goal weight.  This is outstanding.

And yet, I’m the mother, I would like her to feel ‘hungry’.  For some reason this bothers me.  What does food represent to each of us?  Pleasure?  Social interaction? Family time”  For Chloe, its still remains a mystery.  To not feel hunger?  Lets all think cheeseburgers, fries…ice cream…pizza????

still a long road to go.  And yet, more than we understood yesterday.  Hope is alive.

May you all be in your own hope this night.

    Wow, we have seen so much growth and now Chloe it is time for you to think about what eating is……is it family time? When is the most enjoyable time to eat for you?

    Glad you are are feeling better!
