Mum keen to act.
I have just expanded my repotoire. I had been busy lately, and had not had time to surf the web, but I have just read a few fantastic blogs. I have updated my blogs of interest with a few great reads.
Today, we are going to the Hospital for a second opinion with another Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist. We are keen get the fluid in Sheena's ears treated. That is on the notes from the 1st ENT Dr we saw, "Mum keen to act". We are a bit worried that he is 'old school', and was just letting it go until Sheena is 18 months. Doesn't make much sense given that hearing is so critical for learning and developing.
While we are in there, we are going to get Sheena weighed. She is back to eating nothing. She'll drink, but it is really starting to stress me out again. I think it is a natural parenting thing to stress about that, even if specialist say not to. Sheena had a dietitian appointment last Friday and she was very practical and very helpful. She suggested liverworst, pate, white sauce to expand Sheena's dietary intake. The liverworst and pate are rich in vitamins, and calories. Sheena took to them at first but yesterday and today, wanted nothing.
Also, Sheena now has a top tooth to match her bottom tooth. It cut-through a week or so ago.
