Maddie Rae finally gave in yesterday and ate a jar of baby food and some jello. She also drank a cup of PediaSure, and today she has even had a mango banana smoothie. Hopefully we're turning a corner on the eating. Her mouth is still really sore and she is nervous about the spoon. She is doing remarkably well: playing, happy, and sleeping well. Yesterday was her birthday, and although it was very anticlimactic all things considered, she did get a few new toys. I guess we could have pureed some cake, but something gets lost in that translation! Thanks for all your continued prayers for her recovery.
