Update on Cooper

A little more on Cooper's enlarged colon:
I spoke with his dietitian today about his GI issues and the x-ray results. Her suggestion was to continue with the Florajen capsules (1 is equal to 10 cups of yogurt :)) once a day to promote good bacteria growth AND increase his enzymes per feeding from 3 to 3.5 for a good week or two. Then, if he STILL doesn't seem to be doing well we'll look into taking him to a GI peds specialist at the UW. Then the plan might include an abdominal scan. She thought our concern of possible surgery to correct the issue may very well be a possibility to pursue in the future.

On a good note, kickball is only 24 days away! We are getting really excited and thrilled to see all the support coming our way. There are lots of new sponsors, a few new teams and hopefully lots of money to be raised. Last year we raised close to $10,000. Here's an updated list of all our sponsors so far:
