A pretty normal weekend

HE EATS!  Tristan woke up Friday asking for McDonald's breakfast. YES! he has actually had quite the appetite this weekend (mostly junk food). I think he is enjoying the fact that if he asks for it, we find a way to get it!  You bet I drove to McDonald's in my pajamas to get this Sausage McMuffin! Other things he now has a taste for: Pepperoni Pizza, Chilli's Cajun Pasta, Pizza, Vanilla Ice cream, Pizza and Pizza.  He has asked for Pizza for Breakfast lunch and dinner. What you want Ice Cream and Pizza for breakfast? Let me get my shoes on! 

He has gained back 3 pounds. Now that he is eating he will still have the feeding tube run for 12hrs through the night. Once he reaches his original weight they will consider taking it out and see if his appetite says strong and he is able to maintain it.
Right now he is taking a medication that increaces his appetite called Megace, so we will see if he can continue to eat without the help of the feeding tube and medicine.

My Aunt and Cousins came today with Flowers for my yard, gloves and Potting soil. They weeded part of my yard and planted some beautiful spring flowers.Tristan even came outside to visit with them and enjoy the sunshine.

Thank you so much. She told me that she didn't want to tell me they were doing it because I might try to talk them out of it. (she was right I would have said no, but it looked so great, I love that they got it done and with all of them helping it did not take long). I kept looking at the weeds and walking away because it looked to be an overwhelming project. Thanks Osbornes!!

He has been feeling pretty good. It comes in spurts, he feels great eats and then he falls asleep...newborns! Chris really wanted to take him shooting this weekend and I am happy to say that he wanted to go and actually hit the Target. He was weak and slept all the way there and all the way back but shot better than the rest of us. : )


  1. Glad he got to do some normal things. Praying always. Your poor cheek...ouch. I love the countdown chain :)

  2. Everyone in class wants your cool wristbands... even my mom! We are excited to see you. Love Eaven

  3. Tiffany,

    This is Jennifer, I used to work with Dr. Dan. I am so shocked to hear about this news. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. What a tough thing to go through. My daughter also sees Dr. Randall, you are in good hands.



  4. Tiffany,
    Let me know what I can do for my sweet Tristan! I know he's been begging for a visit from his favorite teacher. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
