If you give a pig a pancake...

...he'll ask for syrup to go with it.

Cayden brought this book home from his school library a few weeks ago. What a great segue to our next fundraiser for CF in Fennimore this weekend. If you're up for a drive (or if you live in a relatively close proximity) consider joining us for our 6th year of

Flipping flap jacks

Sizzling sausages

And O-Ding on cheese curds for a benefit full of silent auction items included Brewer Tickets, camp ground certificates, and the list goes on and on!

Last year we raised just over $6,000 for the Foundation. We are hoping to do better this year!

On a side note Cooper had a great clinic visit yesterday, just shy of hitting 24 lbs (only 4 lbs lighter than Trinity!) We saw an N.P. because of difficulty in scheduling and she, like I, agreed that Cooper is still having some major malabsorption because of the quality and quantity he is still having in bowel movements a day despite his positive weight gain.

After brainstorming some possible avenues to pursue our plan going forward in the next 6 weeks before our next clinic visit was to reduce his caloric intake by decreasing Pediasure shakes from 2-3 a day to 1-2 a day. Since Cooper will be 1 soon (way too soon even for ME!?!) he will be switching to whole milk which may help some also. If that does not make a difference, the second step will be to increase his omemprozale (acid reducer) dosage.
