Hooray!

Yay! After nearly a month of static weight and weight loss, Wrigglesworth has stacked on 270 grams in four days, weighing in now at 4.58 kilos or just over 10 pounds. That is a HUGE weight gain for him so we are very stoked indeed. The nurse said he is likely to stack on some pounds really quickly over the next few weeks as he has been starved of calories without the NG tube and his body is keen to grow. My initial misgivings about having a tube taped back on his face are now replaced with lashings of love for that pipe of plastic. So uncross fingers people, and pop your thumbs up – its the stuff of dreams.
