nothing

That’s how much our boy has had to eat or drink in the last 12 hours. We’ll see how the night goes.

I gave him some baby food pears at dinner tonight, and while he spit out every bite, at least he wasn’t crying about it. The crying he saves for the bottles. Oh, and for the medication, he practices the extra special trick of regurgitation.

If only he would use his superhuman stubborness willpower for good, not evil 🙂

    hi lauren — it is jan (JTM phoebe…still involved in a vung tau nightmare…long story, different orphanage than E’s…not sure if you remember emailing with me. i would say ‘you slept since then’ but that would be cruel, huh? hoping your sense of humor kicks in.)

    anyway, i want to help sooo bad. you are a mom already and a smart lady, BUT i had to do something. i found this link online and i know E’s ‘issues’ are medical, but maybe something here will spark a new idea? i’ll continue to pray…. people care. love in Jesus, jan

    Oh, man, Ren! Your inverted commas post made me laugh and nearly made me cry as well.

    Eat, Emmett, eat! I promise, food is good!

    I love you and miss you terribly. You are on my mind every day.

  4. Good luck with the food… It’s going to be stressful but I’m sure it will work. I’m thinking of you guys.

    Sending more prayers….those Aries. They are stubborn. 🙂

  6. I’m sorry to hear he’s not eating yet. I hope he gives in soon and starts eating! I know how much you don’t want him to have surgery for this.
