evs eats peaches

Well, it's been about 2 weeks since Evelyn's surgery, and she's really been back to her old self for a good while, now. It's all so cliché; "they bounce back so fast when they're young!", but boy, is it true.

Evelyn actually had an MRI this past Wednesday (6-Feb), and had to be sedated for it, to keep her still enough for a good image. While we really weren't thrilled about her being put under anesthesia twice inside of 10 days, we do take it as a positive that she was fired-up enough (and showing it) for it to be required. ;-) It's actually standard operating procedure at CHOA for them to sedate for MRI's; we were just hoping to avoid it. The MRI was just a check-up to see how her brain's lookin'; to make sure the cysts are still not growing or (hopefully) still reducing in size. We'll be getting those results a bit later.

Anyhow, without further adieu - especially since we've been so remiss with pictures, I thought I'd post some brief video of Evelyn (kind of) eating peaches - she really wasn't cooperating too much (naturally, since I was trying to film it). However, she's really been doing pretty well with eating, lately - we normally try to make her "work" to slurp it off the spoon (which she occasionally does a little bit in this video). Also - because we figure either many folks might be curious or not know "what's a feeding tube look like" - both of which applied to Kim & I prior to all this - I include that on there, as well.
