Proud new owner...

Sorry I haven't updated in a couple days, we've been busy. The doctors decided that Nathan's problem was simply a milk protein intolerance. His little body just doesn't like the protein in milk and he gets terrible diarrhea whenever he has it, that is why he lost so much weight with all that diarrhea. Now that he is on a milk free diet he is starting to gain weight again, for the first time in a month.

Today I picked up Matt and Nathan from the hospital once he was discharged. When I got to the hospital Matt and Nathan came walking down the stairs, it was so nice to see. Nathan looks good again, it's nice to see. He isn't back to normal but he is getting there. He is acting better than he has in a long time, he actually wants to get up and play.

The formula the doctors wanted to put Nathan on at night was going to be pretty expensive so we worked on his blended diet to make it so that Nathan will get all his calories during the day and wouldn't need to eat at night. Today Matt talked to the nutritionist at the hospital and she approved his new diet for him so he no longer needs to eat at night as long as he tolerates his new diet. We won't know for a couple days if he's going to tolerate it though so for now we just have to wait and see.

Trevor is very glad to be back at home. He was so excited to see his kitties when he got down on the floor. He went straight for them and I think Toggle missed him because Toggle let Trevor catch him. Trevor is also the proud new owner of TWO teeth. Yes, yes he got his second tooth and now has two teeth on the bottom. Today we fed him real food for dinner and he loved it, he even ate some peas and carrots and cleaned his plate. He loves food!

Since Nathan is on school vacation for the rest of the week I am hoping to take both boys to the museum or the planetarium this week, I think Nathan would really love either one. I just want to do something fun to make up for Nathan not having a great time on vacation.

Finally figured out pictures, here are a couple from vacation...
