Marie's Musings

Musings from the mundane day to day life of a mom of 9 to more serious ponderings of the day.

His appt with the developmental specialist is tommorrow morning, from 9 -11 am. Yes, a 2 hr appt. Thankfully, a friend agreed to babysit the other two toddlers, so I dont have to contend with several kids at the appt.

I sort of feel at a loss at what to do with this child. Everything that Ive done with all the other kids, either doesnt work or has minimal results. Ive nursed all my babies on demand, whenever they wanted to eat and they all grew healthy and strong. Zechariah in fact was a chunky little baby, even though now hes one of the skinniest. Im feeding Gideon all the time it seems, he eats such a short time,that hes hungry much sooner. Yet hes not only not gaining, hes losing weight. His poor little body is skeletal and cannot afford to even loose a few ounces.

I am working on giving him cereal once a day. He takes it okay, not great, gags a little but will eat 4 or 5 bites at least.

I worry and pray and worry some more over this kid. Its really hard not to worry and the anxiety at times over him is just plain overwhelming. Hopefully tommorrow we will begin figuring out how to help him develop as he needs to.

God is good ... all the time!
