Delaney's feeding tube was pulled on Sunday night. It is very difficult for Delaney, remember she has not eaten food for 9 months, and not by choice. Not to mention all of the changes her body had to endure with chemotherapy. For example killing or altering her taste buds, which still may or may not be functioning correctly. Delaney has begun to drink milk as her primary source of caloric intake, taking sips of Gatorade, and drinking water. We have been calorie counting, measuring each and every drop of liquid, tracking the number of wet diapers she has and providing any and every food or liquid option available. Mommy and Daddy are doing there best but it is impossible to keep the stress, anxiety and emotions at bay, as it is difficult to watch a vital function, such as eating, become so challenging, and instill so much fear and anxiety. But Delaney is no quitter, she holds her head up high and works fiercely to overcome her challenges. Delaney has lost 15oz. In weight over 3 days we can expect a drop in weight at the same time we hope for an increase in food intake. It is still day by day, and the feeding tube could go back in at any time. Thank you for all the prayers, love, and support. as always ..... GO TEAM DRLANEY!!
