the adventures of a MAD mom

Casey is, so far, coming through the induction process with flying colors.  He spent yesterday on a special egg nog mixture and today started with solid food.  He has shown no signs of the possible side effects – nausea, vomiting, low blood sugar or moodiness.  In fact, he thinks he is on a mini vacation with all the hospital supplied electronics and a friend to share them with.  It was a genius idea to have the two of them together and is working out really well.  I am hoping he feels as well tomorrow, a full 24 hours on the new ratio.

His lunch today consisted of about 3 oz. of meat, 4 tablespoons of butter and a couple oz. of whole cream.  Looking at that much fat in one meal, it’s hard to imagine adding it up over months or even years.  I just can’t think about it that much, and must instead focus on the long term benefits.
