We found a pharmacy that carries the special powder the doctor asked us to put J on. We picked it up tonight and started him on it. He doesn't notice it at all when it is mixed into his cereal. We haven't tried mixing it directly into his milk yet. We'll see how he does first.
The problem with the powder, though, is that it is basically a carbohydrate and sugar blend. While it increases J's caloric content, it also hypes him up something fierce and increases his activity level. And tonight, it was hard to keep him from bouncing off the walls. I have never seen him fall down so much or climb over so many things. I mean, he was energetic enough before we started him on the powder. I don't see how he can gain weight if he quickly burns through the calories with his high levels of activity.
I am exhausted. J has burnt himself out now. I may fall asleep. Here. At my computer. While I attempt to do my schoolwork. Or I may just do the logical thing: give up on schoolwork for the night and go to sleep. I have lots to do, but I'm past absorbing it now.
J has tried veggie chicken noodle casserole, veggie beef, and veggie beef with spaghetti. He has kept them all down. But tonight, he threw up his Minigo. He was just over-full. I must watch closer for his signs that he has had enough; he doesn't give the typical signals, and his "done" is much subtler than I would like. I can miss it very easily. Not good.
