Ever since we got back from Thanksgiving, Alex has taken a pretty good step forward in eating.  It must have been that he saw us all gorging ourselves on turkey!  Actually, I guessing that it's because we dropped him back to only one 7 ounce bolus during the night.  He's been eating at least a container of food per meal, and sometimes the equivalent of two!  It looks like we're not going to have to order any more Pediasure, as it looks like he stands a good chance of being off of bolus feeding by Christmas.  Now we have to get him drinking more.  Right now he's still getting the vast majority of his water by tube, in the form of three 7 ounce water boluses throughout the day.  We're going to have to take a little more conservative route to wean him off of that, as you don't mess around with dehydration, especially with someone with heart conditions.

Now I just have to tell myself that this is probably a high in his sinusoidal eating behavior, but I can't, because I'm just too happy with the way things are progressing!
