Me, A Mom

3 kids and a dog

What’s 100# 5′ 4″ eats all day and never gains weight?

a teenage boy that’s what!

ok so it doesn’t help that he has eosinophillic esophagitis (EoE)

which is a condition in which white blood cells collect in the esophagus(where they should not be)

EOE causes him to not absorb nutrients properly

so after 3 years of puking every other day and then sleeping all day

after being misdiagnosed with

anxiety

stress

abdominal migraines

he finally got a diagnosis and has started putting on weight

{note to all parents advocate for your kids trust your gut and push further if something just doesn’t seem right!}

yay

but …

he is always hungry!

a bottomless pit!

I think the grocery bills have doubled since he became a teen

he eats literally all day

he eats supper and

no less than an hour or so later he is making himself a Dagwood style sandwich!

ok perhaps that is exaggerating just a bit

his is just 3 slices of bread with 4-6 slices of cheese usually!

then a handful of meat

or some crackers

Meals that used to last us 3 days now get us barely through 1

so last night I made a 5 pound boneless pork butt

from a recipe from the paper

I served it with homemade coleslaw

on rolls

with side of mashed potatoes

and guess what

they loved it! and there is enough left for at least 2 more meals

whoot whoot!

tonight will be meatloaf

and then the rest of the week should work out to be left overs!(their choice of course)

until my next post

happy eating

happy living
