The News from Here


We ended up not calling the doctor. I knew this would happen. We go through this routine all the time... things seem bad enough in the evening to call; by morning he feels better... next evening... well, you can guess. We did decide to give this until the kind of arbitrary date of April 13 to see if it just resolved itself. Again.

He is eating about 1200 calories a day if I push protein shakes down his throat, and every day, his weight is about a pound higher. No, this is not normal. And he complains about feeling absolutely stuffed all the time. And every night, his temperature goes up to 101 or 102 for a few hours.

I am trying to just sit this one out and wait and see what happens. He is so miserable and frustrated, though, that it's hard.

And so far, on my resolve to really keep track of food every day this week... total fail. Sigh.
