Eggo Waffles + lots of TLC = weight gain!

A few of you have emailed or called to check on the latest with Elizabeth, so I thought I'd send a brief update to let you know Elizabeth seems to have fully recovered from her illnesses of a few weeks ago! After eating like a champ for 4 days straight (1 cup of oatmeal fortified with cream and butter and flax seed and 2 Eggo waffles for breakfast) and then resuming her regular diet, she's gaining back the weight she lost, is doing well. Her cardiology apt. went well and nothing seems to have changed since 6 mos. ago, her labs came back either normal or typically irregular (some of her tests are always a little off) and we're just waiting on a few more, but feeling more assured that she's back on track. We'll meet with her GI in 2 weeks to regroup and talk about how to address her Portal Hypertension moving forward, but other than that, we'll be status quo for the next little while.
