Feeding therapy

It was a fairly slow end of the week last week. Ben had a field trip to the pumpkin patch and loved it.

On Sunday all 7 of us went to the pumpkin patch. It was a HUGE patch with over 50 activities. The kids had so much fun. Eli got to go on a barrel train ride, a horse tire swing, and played in the corn pit. He also got to pick out his very own pumpkin! It got warmer than expected and the day really wore him out alot. He spent the rest of the evening sleeping.

Monday was a very slow quiet day!
Tuesday Jace had his appt with the developmental/behavioral psychologist. It was just alot of basic information and discussions. She is getting to know Jace and then will work to formulate a plan that will be the best. Currently she will be focusing on his physical aggression and his eating issues.
Last night Eli had what appeared to be a 3 to 5 min seizure with O2 sat drop. Makes for a fun start to the evening. His neuro has been called and deciding if they want to make any changes.
Benjamin also had his appt with the feeding team today. He did pretty well. They said he is definitely malnourished and are wanting to start him on vitamins as well as a few other things. The OT also wants to get a full sensory diet started for Ben. They will be working in conjunction with his doctor and psychologist. We are hoping to find a good solution for Ben when it comes to nutrition. He is so darned tiny.

Tonight is our ASL class. It's fall parties tonight for us and for the kids. They are super excited to get to wear their costumes. We have made cheesecake bites for our class. I can't wait to try them.

Tomorrow is Emily's 11th birthday. Since there is no school tomorrow she took her treats today. This weekend my parents will be in town to celebrate her birthday!

Today is Ben's Parent/Teacher conference, and tomorrow is Emily, Jace, and Ari! So nobody has school for the rest of the week. Hoping to get some housework and pumpkin carving done! Pictures and updates soon.
