Sam's lab results looked good this morning so they went ahead with the plan to begin adding other items orally to his feeding routine.

Today they added an essential oil that will basically tell us if his system is able to digest fats. He is getting just a little bit a few times a day through his feeding tube in addition to his feedings of Pedialyte. He has been eating pretty well, but after the first 20 or so milliliters of Pedialyte he starts to spit it out and make some pretty horrible faces. I don't blame him. If you ever need to give your children Pedialyte, go for the flavored stuff as the unflavored has a flavor and it is not really pleasant.

Not much else new for today, we now need to wait in between each element that is added to his feeding routine to see what type of reaction he has. It will be a slow process, but hopefully this will point the doctors in the right direction to try to determine what exactly is wrong for Sam.
