"Forgive me if you have already tried this, but since you are no longer on the program, is it possible to change what you feed her? Is it possible she really can't palate the food?"
Thank you for asking! I meant to include this, and forgot : ) We have tried to change it up, and make it more interesting. We have run the gauntlet all the way down to her former favorite of Taco Bell. Some things work for a few bites, and then not. We are to the point where we will give her anything just to get her to open her mouth.
So, if she's not going to open her mouth, we stick to what's good for her. Her doctor thinks it's a control thing. Since it's the only thing in her whole life she has control over, she's taking the opportunity! Makes sense, frustrating, but it makes sense.
That was a great question.
I so welcome any help, or suggestions!
