My husband flew in to San Diego Friday. We went sight seeing Saturday and Sunday. My son uses a template to make sure he was eating all the food groups for breakfast, lunch and dinner and two food groups for his three snacks. He is loving the nutrition side of it and is eating very well. This morning he actually ordered an egg white omelet with broccoli, feta cheese, spinach and onion with an English muffin and fresh fruit cup!
He still doesn't want to go to the 10 hr day treatment center for eating disorders. He wants to go to a therapist 1 on 1. We found a place that does neurotherapy. My husband is going to take my son to check it out tomorrow. (I came home to Maryland tonight).
My husband took my son to get blood work today to make sure his body chemistry was on track. He said my son now weighs 133 lbs!! He is up 29 lbs in a week and a half! My husband said my son kept eating good after he saw that weight. Yayyyy! My son is supposed to weigh 149 lbs. I told my husband it is his turn to keep it going in that direction.
I am welcoming this break. I have never gone through anything like that before and never want to again. Every one in the hospital kept remarking on how strong I was. But, I really wasn't. I had to put up a front to get him through it. Have you ever read Footprints In The Sand? Jesus was carrying me through. Wednesday I am going to meet with a Eating Disorder therapist for parents. I don't want to end up with PTSD or a breakdown.
Anyway, I have my Roxy back and I am going to enjoy this positive moment in time.
Thanks again for all of your prayers and support. It has helped my family tremendously.
