All good things must come to an end I guess. After almost a week of my tummy being back to normal I got sick this morning. Mommy had tried to increase the rate of my feeding and she's still not sure if that caused me to vomit or if it was because I needed to have a stinky and didn't. Because it was the first feeding of the day Mommy was nervous for the day ahead - I had two therapy appointments scheduled. But Mommy moved the rate back to where it has been the last few days and I was fine the rest of the day.
Mid-morning I had my feeding therapy appointment with Karen #1. I had apparently forgotten how to suck out of a straw in the course of a week but I was happy to have Karen #1 put Pixie Stix dust on my tongue. Candy is good!
After a short nap it was time for my second therapy appointment of the day - occupational therapy with Karen #2. It's been almost two months since I last saw Karen #2 as she has been out on summer break. I was a little shy around her and stayed on Mommy's lap for the first 10 minutes or so but eventually I warmed up to her. She was thrilled to see how well I am doing since my cast has come off. I even demoed going up and down the slide for her. Because Karen #2 is employed with the Sacramento County Office of Education, the budget cuts won't effect her services so I will continue to get occupational therapy the same as I did before.
Because my tummy did so well the rest of the day after dinner Mommy and Daddy took me to the park. I got to go down the slides and run all over the grass. I definately wasn't ready to go home when it was time to leave!
