We're Working Hard

Well, we did see a regression following Naomi's illness.  She stopped eating solid food, didn't want to use her hands and lost interest in most of her favorite activities.  We've been working hard with her Occupational Therapy program and she is using her hands again, which is great, because it also means she is playing with her toys.  She is loving her books again, too.  She still is not eating solid food.  It was getting really stressful for her and us, so we are on a break from solid food for three weeks.  She is enjoying drinking her bubbas and we are enjoying the break from the stress and struggle of feeding her.  Next week, we will start again with stage 1 baby foods.  Hopefully it will come back quickly.  Her first regression occured over a period of about 8 weeks.  We are four weeks in now, and are feeling hopeful that some of the things she lost have come back already, over about the past week, and that maybe this will be the extent of it.  This is just another way it is hard dealing with Naomi's conditions.  It's like watching a car wreck in slow motion, and then being the one to go in afterwards to look for survivors.
