Mythology, McNeese, and Music

Eric and Andrew started a week-long afternoon mythology class at MSU today. They both think they'll like it, kind of a small discussion group-type class. The class ends at the perfect time for us to go over to Collette Hall, the dorm used by the Governor's Program, and see Eric's friends from last summer stroll in from dinner and a long day of gifted classes. Eric really enjoyed this and all the kids at GPGC were happy to see Eric, too. Someone interviewed him for the program newspaper. Then we went downtown and heard the Lake Charles Community Band play at the outdoor amphitheater by the lake. Such a pleasant evening.

Whoever left the Ensure on the front porch, Thanks! We need it. The pound he had gained yesterday morning was gone and then some today. We're picking up a new appetite stimulant at the pharmacy tomorrow. And we sure hope it works. We really don't want to put that NG tube back in. But he hasn't truly gained any weight in the past two weeks.

maybe a protien powder supplement is in order .. perhaps NitroWhey by ProSource?

We do add protein powder to a couple of Eric's drinks each day.

Glad Eric is able to get out and do things with his brother. I'm sure Andrew likes the company. I hope you can get the weight up so you don't have to fight anymore tubes and feedings. I suppose the more Eric does, the more calories he needs to ingest. I never had to work to gain weight, only lose it. Prayers for success.

Sorry he's still having such a struggle with the weight gain. Wish I had some new ideas for you! I am glad to hear that he's continuing to do so well otherwise. Love to you, Bob, Andrew and Eric!! Maybe we'll be able to sneak in a visit over the summer . . . hope so!!
