After almost a year avoiding wheat, eggs, dairy, nuts, soy, peas, corn, barley, and oats we are finally able to introduce some new flavors and foods into Harrison’s diet.
It’s been one heck of a journey with lots of sleepless nights and a whole lot of praying, but God is good and he is answering our prayers.
I never imagined I would get so emotional feeding my child cinnamon toast, yet, here I am today, with tears as I watch him devour 2 pieces of regular honey wheat bread. My heart leaps for joy as I see my son’s ability to finally eat without pain and suffering, and to see him eat with such a voracious appetite.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen such a change in his appetite and acceptance of new foods. It’s been a whirlwind of welcomed change. He displays much more interest in foods and is more adventurous with his offerings. He tastes almost anything offered to him and has become very curious to whatever is being served to anyone else.
His current favorites are sun dried tomato pasta, bell peppers, cinnamon toast, cressant rolls, fruit Cheerios and Popsicles.
For a kid who has lived a boring life of simple meat and potatoes with fruits and veggies, you can imagine the abundance of excitement when those flavorful items are finally allowed into his diet.
This is just a first step in the process, but I felt the need to share with you just how much better little man is doing in such a short turnaround.
He still has more tests that will need to be filled, but this little victory must be celebrated.
Thank you all for the many many thoughts, comments, and prayers for Harrison. Please continue to lift us up when you think of us.
