Thank you Secrets of a Stylist for the idea to make this map in our living room a little more festive!
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support! We've felt so much love these past few days and I'm happy to report, Ollie is back to his old cheerful self.
It turns out Ollie has
In the meantime, we're supposed to do what we can to help this little guy build some fat up in his system. My friend Kersten's dad just happens to be a pediatric endocrinologist who helped talk us through everything going on with Ollie and provided some advice to help him gain weight (Ollie is now almost up the the 50th percentile in height, but has fallen to the 3rd in weight and he can't keep a pair of pants on to save his life). A few suggested changes for Ollie's diet: adding half and half to his cereal in the morning, adding melted cheese anytime he's eating vegetables, keeping brown gravy on hand to add to any meat that we can get him to eat, never giving him water to drink, and adding carnation instant breakfast to his whole milk which he will continue to drink well after the normally recommended age 2 cutoff.
Things are going to be interesting around here, but this was actually the best possible cause of his low blood sugar that we could hope for and we're feeling pretty happy about the news.
