Our CF clinic was Monday, and we are thrilled that Peter is now 55% BMI. That means we've got the "green light" on his diet, activity level, and enzyme absorption. Woohoo! (He's almost always been under 50% BMI--where he needs to be to grow those lungs as big as he can.) Peter's gained 3 pounds in the past 3 months and grown too (without losing that weight). Hurray! I think a lot of it has to do with switching enzymes -- at first he was taking 4 Creon pills with meals, but he was starting to have more and more digestion problems. The gastroenterologist increased it to 5 pills just to see if it would help. It did, but when we went back down to 4, we started seeing the same issues. So, we've switched to Zenpep. The granules in the capsules are a lot harder to swallow, but Peter is learning and the enzymes are working a LOT better. It's so nice to know that Peter is digesting his food.
Here's our little buddy at my Photo Club shoot the other night. We had an awesome time with the horses at a friend's barn!
