Ha ha- hold that thought tina72, the last one a few years back was a disaster. We had to apologise to a lot of nearby people after meltdowns over food. 
I am taking a few bottles of gin! Not usually a drinker but it maybe needed.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead...it sounds amazing.  Hope that there are no major hiccups, and you get the respite and lovely memories that you so deserve!

I will be amazed if we even get there. My son is now threatening not going as he has heard stuff about my D that paints her as a drug addict in an abusive relationship. We live in a small town and whenever he goes anywhere he hears this rubbish and it takes control of him. Total control.
When she hears stuff she ignores it and judges for herself. 
So yes, hold the thought until we make it!

Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

2015 12yo son restricting but no body image issues, no fat phobia; lost weight IP! Oct 2015 home, stable but no progress. Medical hosp to kick start recovery Feb 2016. Slowly and cautiously gaining weight at home and seeing signs of our real kid.

May 2017 Hovering around WR. Mood great, mostly. Building up hour by hour at school after 18 months at home. Summer 2017 Happy, first trip away in years, food variety, begin socialising. Sept 2017, back to school FT first time in 2 years. [thumb] 2018 growing so fast hard to keep pace with weight
