I removed milk products from Allie's diet 3 weeks ago and we have seen no change in her. Not one little thing has changed so I guess that's good. I just started introducing milk again so I'll watch her closely to see if she has any type of reaction.
Since allowing Allie to eat corn products again, her oral intake has increased. Her oral intake it far from a typical 3 year old, however it's an increase and we are proud of her. I have taken it upon myself to reduce her tube feedings to see if she will feel hungry without the feeds. She has eaten slightly more with the reduced tube feeds but not nearly enough. I don't want to reduce her feeds too much because she really has no room to lose weight. She's already a peanut!
No decisions have been made yet in regards to the feeding clinics. I am patiently waiting to hear back from both facilities. I am pretty convinced that Allie needs a feeding clinic in order to eat more orally. She is making great progress but she still has a very long way to go. I'll keep you updated as to what we decide with the feeding clinic.
Here are a couple pictures of the girls in their kitty pool this weekend......

|Chloe always ready with a smile|

|Yup, this is how it ended - Allie mad about something. Armed crossed and attitude in full swing!|
