So, it has been over 2 weeks that Matthew has been on his gastroperisis meds, and I'm excited to say that we think they are working.
Pre-medicine, Matthew would eat a handful of table food and more times than naught, he would throw it all up. Since the meds, he's been eating much more table food and he hasn't thrown up at all. Very exciting news!
We now aren't fearful of letting him try new things. In the past 2 weeks he has tried lots of new things-- blueberries, cereal, black beans, small bits of bread, broccoli, carrots, corn, peas, etc. He still gets baby food as his main source of sustenance, but he has made huge progress toward eating non-pureed food! I guess the frustration over working with the GI's unbelievably annoying nurse and the cost of the meds have been worth it!
