There are two types of medication that are administered this way.
Then eating. Mary Deane needs a high fat, high salt diet! Part of CF. The rest of us would think we'd gone to heaven to eat all the ice cream and potato chips our little fat stomachs desire. Another medication that she has to have as a regular part of her meals is an enzyme that helps her absorb that fat. They mix it into the "cream on the top" yogurt. And warn Mary Deane not to bite the little time capsules. Then she needs to eat or the enzymes will eat the lining of her stomach. Stressful?! YES! But they do this everyday, twice a day, or more if need be. And Mary Deane is HAPPY and GREGARIOUS.
Gramma Rebecca thinks she's going to be a diplomat when she grows up. She already is. Yesterday at church we were outside with Mary Deane waiting for her parents to come. Two women came walking up the sidewalk. When they were still 30 feet away, Mary Deane looked at them and yelled "HIGHEE!"(say it with Sauthewn ahksent) When they got closer she said, "Hellow!" and when they walked by she waved and said, "See Yah!" All at the top of her lungs.
