Peanut's update
Update posted by Linda Parks On Aug 17



    Good morning friends
last Thursday night was a rotten one for Peanut. He circled for longer ,and more often.brain damage causes this behavior, and he is starting to loose a little weight . I have been concerned about this,the Dr Kline said he might.his water intake and appetite are areas for concern. he is getting frustrated at times because his jaws do not open more than about 1/4 inch, the Dr thinks he may have a blood born issue that was under the surface , that the trauma of the fall brought to the surface! he eats by pushing the food further into his mouth by using the flat bottom of the dish to push the food on into his mouth .time consuming /messy/frustrating for my baby boy!! SO --I've started feeding him by hand. if he stands in front of me,and I get his chin up, he opens as far as he can , then I push the food further each time he attempts to gulp it back further into his mouth !
Talk about a joint effort LOL!!!!! but his eating goes much faster and less frustrating. that makes Mum happy. this has gone well for 2 days now,
