Before Ryan’s ICU stay over Christmas, we started introducing him to “real” food. We were only two days into it when he was taken to the emergency room.
Sue resumed processing vegetables last weekend, starting with apples. Over the course of the week, we have also successfully tried a puree of kale and carrot. We use pomegranate juice as the liquid base. We are trying different source of nutrition in small, measured doses. At some point in the future we anticipate replace most/all of the canned tube feeds. So far, Ryan is tolerating the change well. ***Fingers crossed *** Like everything he gets, we are administering these through his g-tube.
