Raffy was pretending to be a pussycat and asked for a bowl of water 'soup'.
He bent down and took a SHLURP...
The beginning of his journey to drinking after a 3 year drought! 3 years and 2 days!
He is now picking up a water bottle on his own and independently drinking... water! The first time water has ever passed his lips.
The effect on mum and dad has been BIG!
A release from the daily, hourly offer of spoon-fed thickened smoothie... the ritual, the particular colour, consistency, the almost constant rejecting... arhhhhh.
Breathe... relax, let go.
We are so grateful for this time!
Thank you Son-Rise for giving us trust and strength, thank you to all our amazing volunteers for the 'modelling', fun and most importantly the belief.
And he is drawing the most beautiful and imaginative creatures (more pictures to come... these creatures are now having adventures!).
Please celebrate with us and enjoy the pictures.
(Meanwhile mum is having a burst of eczema... another release after 3 years of emotional tension. Embrace...) x
