Pingu
So here I go. Still being positive and calm. She is relapsing which I suspected she may do. 
Last week I insisted camhs weigh her Friday as that's the day I swap with dad and lo and behold 0.8kg gain. I was delighted but then the murderous look on her face told me to keep that to myself.
We are weighing again this Friday so no doubt she will have restricted and lost. 
Shes driving herself at school... Desperate to catch up and going in to year 11sept.

That's if she's not back IP. 
She's currency hovering about the 42kg mark.
Keeping calm is so hard when she screams at me but yesterday she said she missed me

Hi Pingu,
that weight gain is great but sad that you already know she will lose it again next week.
You said she is driving herself at school...do you mean by car? Did the doctors allow that at that state/weight? She might be a danger to herself and others if she has a meltdown or low blood sugar while driving...just a though. We used driving therefor as leverage for good eating.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Hey Pingu, I was wondering how you are.  I can’t help wonder if she should be at school at this stage,  I know you’ve had such a rough time what with her dad not helping much etc.
