Team Work: Maryam puts the dirt in the wheel barrel, Charlie Mae takes it out.
My turn: Charlie Mae takes the shovel, shovels the dirt out of the wheel barrel and into her hand.
Let's go, go, go! They ran on this ply board for about 15 minutes yelling GO, GO, GO.
My turn: Maryam finally took the wheel barrel from Charlie Mae in hopes that she'd finally be able to fill it.
GREAT NEWS!!!! Maryam's eating has improved by leaps and bounds in the past week! Its actually pretty fascinating. Today she ate 3 ounces of baby food at breakfast (3/4 jar) and lunch she ate a whole jar (4 ounces) and at dinner she ate a whole jar, plus the last ounce from breakfast!!! That's 12 ounces of baby food today and 215 calories. That's almost as much as one can of Pediasure! I think I'm going to go out on a limb and dare say that Maryam is no longer 100% tube fed, and is now only 75% tube fed!!!! HOORAY!! You may all stand up from your computer desks and yell and jump and cheer!

Its been really fun sharing her day to day progress and we've been getting loads of wonderful feedback. Thanks to all of you for checking up on her. We know that everyone's lives are busy, we love that you all take the time to see how she's doing. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
