But, yesterday's GI visit took a bit of wind out of my sails. Matthew isn't gaining weight as quickly as the GI would like, and Matthew's growth curve has flattened out (not good when he wasn't on the curve to begin with). Though the GI is happy with Matthew's subcutaneous fat (fat just below the skin) and that Matthew doesn't look emaciated, he recommends Matthew stay on the gastroperisis meds and that we feed him calorically dense foods as often as he'll eat them. We also hope that Matthew just being well will help with his weight gain too.
