he's not eating

I'm sure you've all been there - when your child won't eat whats for dinner. 

So you try humor and flying airplanes. 
You try rationale:  "It'll make you stronger!  Carrots help you see in the dark!"
You try being tough:  "You will sit there until you eat your dinner."
You may even beg or make a deal...

This is what we are doing with every meal and we can't really find something that is working.

He refused breakfast so we are going to have to have him hold off until lunch time.  If he's hungry enough, the food will look appetizing, well that's we are hoping for.  He fell asleep in the chair while refusing the breakfast so we've moved him to the bed and he's still out cold.  It's hard to see him hungry and tired but not be able to offer him something that would help.  We have to stay focused on the bigger picture - that the diet may stop the seizures. 

Please pray that he will eat.  Pray that God will give Leeon and I the strength to do the hard things.  Please pray that the dietitian will help us develop meals that will work.  and pray that the cream will stop gagging him - it is by far the easiest way to get the fat into the diet.
