Tom just drank five and a half ounces of water! Tom has never drank that much in his life. We have seen greater interest in food lately but this was a complete surprise.
Tom's whole life has been marked by a complete indifference to hunger or thirst. He just simply does not care.
Before Tommy got a g-tube his inadequate food and liquid intake caused many hospitalizations and confused many a doctor. No one could figure out what Tommy wouldn't eat or drink and the many tests he had (swallow test, upper GI, abdominal x-ray....) showed nothing out of the ordinary.
Gulping down that ice cold water!
Keep going! He's finally learning to enjoy food and drinks.
