Karsie has a new cry. It's called "Feed me now or I will keep screaming!" We're not used to this. The following is our list of things to check or do when Karsie cries. 1. Put her to sleep 2. Stand her up 3. Change her diaper 4. Sit her up 5. Clean out her nose 6. Give her a binky 7. Play with her. Now there's a new element that we have come across. The other day we were out to dinner with friends and she started to fuss. She was chewing on her fingers, sucking on anything she could get into her mouth. She started to chew on any toy we gave her. To any normal parent this is an obvious sign of hunger. Not to us. We started checking her omphalocele dressing, looking at her G-Tube site to make sure it wasn't hurting her, all of what's normal to us. All the while, Karsie was practically gnawing off her arm in hunger. Had she drawn a chart that said FEED ME and had a picture of an empty stomach we still might not have gotten it.
Nevertheless, we get it now. Since her condensing, she has been figuring it out just fine...it's her parents that need help.
