1 Step Forward....10 Steps Back

Ok, 10 steps back might be a bit of an exaggeration, but that's what it feels like at the moment.  I felt encouraged this morning when I got a few pictures from Chris that showed Colin smiling and posing for pictures with him.  We were going to try and send him back to preschool today with the OK from the pediatrician, but since he had slept in a little bit later and was still a bit sluggish in getting started this morning, we opted to ease him back in by sending him to daycare instead.  That in itself was a disaster as Colin lost it when Chris brought him in.  He ate a few bites of his cottage cheese, and a few bites throughout the day of pudding, but we still aren't really getting anywhere in that department.  While there is always a discomfort when the kids are sick, especially when there's not much you can do to help, I am also experiencing some anxiety at the steps backwards we have taken with behavior and especially the eating department.  He really wants nothing to do with food right now and while I don't blame him after what he went through, I worry about the little bits of progress we had made since starting feeding therapy.  

Glad to see things slowly start to turn around, but hope we can now speed up into the bright side very quickly!

It can take our kids a little while to recover from an illness. I often feel the same way when my K gets sick and we had been making progress, only to see it diminished during and after a sickness. I hope Colin is on the up and up for good.
