I didnt' want to share with-you guys till I felt it was for real this time, till I felt comfortable with it. I know how frustrating this has been for not only me and difficult child and my family yet for my other family you guys. difficult child has been eating meals now for almost 3 DAYS!! I wanted to share right away yet there's been so many ups and downs. I feel secure in saying now with continued support we are moving forward at light speed. no medications, their all out now. All supports in place, huge huge speech i had with her on Monday and also Tuesday at refeeding therapist. Long story short the dot's connected and the food came. Today 3 nice size meals, no hesitancy at all, just gulped them down. somewhat cautious also using her liquids yet no my throat hurts. a.m.'s are still rough yet she plowed through it today when she woke up. i forced her and said take control again, it's you or the eating disorder who is going to win?? made her scrambled eggs and toast and she ate. than we went to refeeding therapist and brought pizza ate an entire slice with no coaxing whatsoever. therapist just talked to her about her upcoming vacation the animals she'd see. so they just gabbed. she's already planning tmr'ws menu. is thrilled about xmas coming the food she'll get to eat. yet said this doesnt' mean i'm back to school right away right?? LOL i said no you aren't sleeping yet. one step at a time!!! working on that with-sensory evaluation next week. think it may be a mix of bipolar and sensory my gut is screaming at me. we'll c for now we are sleepless yet smiling. and with-no zyprexa, seroquel or any other medication. go figure!!
