Re: Pippi's Story

Is the oatmeal cooked? I was thinking maybe I could just sprinkle some on uncooked.



I forgot about the yams. I will try a little of that, too.

Re: Pippi's Story

If Pippi does have Inflammatory Bowel Disease,...

Re: Pippi's Story

What about pumpkin vs. green beans or pumpkin vs. sweet potatoes when it comes to blood glucose levels? (See my former post about green beans.) Can you give canned pumpkin for a treat, also?

Re: Pray for mochi..

If Mochi just needs fluids without other medications added to the fluids, I don't see why you couldn't stay on the sub q fluids at home. The fluids are the same regardless if they are sub q or IV....
