On Wednesday, she ate through...

After 10 days of a flu-induced diet of saltines and Pedialyte, Riley's appetite has returned.

Here's what she ate today:

half a tub of cottage cheese (a 32-ounce tub...)
a bowl of applesauce
a strip of fruit leather
3 bowls of chili
a bag of Trader Joe's freeze-dried pineapples
two handfuls of dried fruit
a few bites of salad
a small plate of pasta
a few pretzels
2 clementines
a granola bar

After dinner, all she wanted (besides that granola bar) was to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

How appropriate.

So... do we have little Riley to blame for the vomit and diarrhea that will not leave our family!!!! Its horrible! Hopefully an appetite will return shortly. but for now, just reading what Riley ate makes me a little queasy!

That little body ate that much food?!? She must've really been hungry. I'm glad to hear she's feeling better.
