Much Too Much...

Fisher's GI doctor just prescribed him a new medicine on Tuesday (appetite stimulant) to help jump-start his appetite. I wish I could share some of my stimulated appetite with him. Anyway, I wanted to share what a daily dose of his meds looks like. It's just too much. I hate having to make him take all of these every single day. I hate having to sit back and wait, and hope, and pray that these medications are working inside his little body. As you may have already guessed, Monday's appointment did not go as well as we would have liked. Fisher lost weight (though, only a little), and has dropped even further down in his percentile ranking. Weight-for-heighth he is in the 16th percentile for his age. It makes me so sad to think that two years ago, Fisher was in the 90th percentile for his age. It has been suggested that Fisher may benefit from receiving care from a specialty eosinophilic disorders clinic. There are only four in the United States, non of which are located the Lone Star state. We are still praying about God's plan for our little guy, and will continue our fervent search for answers and medical options.
