Abigail has been slowly drinking a few more ounces each day. We aren't back to her minimum 28oz., but she is adding a few ounces each day. An additional 1 to 2 ounces per day seems minimal until you are faced with the task of trying to get your child to eat. These gradual additions are huge!! Those 1 to 2 ounces are the difference between a feeding tube and "by mouth" feedings. I'll take a slow uphill climb any day to avoid placing that feeding tube back down her nose again!
Pure and undefiled religion before our God andFather is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keeponeself unstained by the world. -James 1:27

is the least common of the white blood cells. They make up 2-4% of the white blood count. Children with eosinophilic disease have increased numbers of eosinophils in their blood, GI tract, and/or organs. Produced in the bone marrow, eosinophils then migrate to tissues throughout the body. When a foreign substance (an allergen or parasite, for example) enters the body, lymphocytes and neutrophils (other types of white blood cells) release certain substances to attract eosinophils which release toxic substances killing the invader.
