The Stubbornness Chromosome

We had a lovely surprise visitor at the house this morning
when we got home from horse therapy.
Maddie Clark was there bearing a big bottle of orange juice
for the Keanut man.
He has been hooked on OJ lately and can't seem to get enough of it.
I tell ya, this boy is stressing me out.
I got a call from his Endocrinologist's office today
telling me he's too low on his "fructosomine"-- some
sugar level and now needs to eat a small meal
every three hours.
Um, maybe the doc can do better at getting this boy to eat and drink.
I swear, he got an extra chromosome of stubbornness.
He will only eat and drink if he wants to.
Take tonight, for example, I tried about everything in the house
and couldn't get him to eat more than a few bites of food and
a few bites of a smoothie (spiked with tons of raw corn starch that takes
10 hours to break down in his body so he won't have a hypoglycemic 
seizure).  And just when I thought perhaps, maybe, I got enough
down him-- he threw it all up.
We will see how he does in the morning.
(I did get him to drink some chocolate milk with corn starch).
As for much better news,
Holland spent the evening downtown at one of the parks
helping our photographer friend, Fabiana
as she did a handful of photo sessions with some
of our cancer heroes.
Fabiana is shooting 20 cancer kids this week
as we get everything done and ready for our
Hall of Heroes at St. Luke's on the Pediatric Cancer floor.
She showed me some of her shots in her camera this evening
and they are beautiful!!!
Can't wait.
