Now for the disappointment...we have to head downtown for a weight check and echo on Friday. They (her regular cardiologist and dietitian) did not feel her weight gain was going as well as they hoped (I don't really know what they expected and I will be damn sure to find out on Friday). I know it slowed down, but once we realized it was not just a fluke, we increased her intake. Of course, I think it was too late for them and instead of giving me and Hope a chance, they jumped the gun (this is my opinion, but I will be sharing it with them on Friday).
I know Hope has problems gaining weight and she really needs to get some additional weight on for the winter (as a reserve in case she catches something). I also know she needs to pack on the pounds (literally) to be in the best shape possible for the Glenn. But, as I am looking at it...she has gained almost 2 pounds in 2 months...that is HUGE for her. She only gained 1 pound in almost a year...ughhh!!! I think I am afraid of what they will find on Friday, but I am hopeful it will be a good appointment with little attitude from my little peanut. She is notorious for being difficult and I would like to see that change...someday.
For now, I am off to see if she wants something else to eat. We keep food all over the house and let her graze through the day...I think it is working and I plan to loudly disagree with her cardiologist on Friday...wish me luck and patience!
