Enzymes For Breakfast

Here a video we made this morning of Lucy's breakfast routine. She takes 6 enzymes to aid in the digestion of her pancakes and sausage, a chewable vitamin made especially for CF kids that are usually deficient in vitamins A, D, E and K and a probiotic (same live culture found in yogurt but in higher doses) that helps with her overall stomach health.

With reminders not to use her teeth, she is able to take all her pills and swallow them whole. I was nervous when we switched her from the Creon enzyme to the Pancreacarb. The Pancreacarb is slightly larger than the Creon pills that we have grown to know and love in the last year and a half but Lucy was able to swallow the new Pancreacarb pills without a problem. I was dreading the day that we might have to go back to opening every single pill into applesauce!

Along with the taking of enzymes, a vitamin and a probiotic you will also see a little Lucy CF cough, a little Lucy sneeze, the ABC song with a mouthful of pancake and a botched version of Twinkle Little Star.

  2. Wow this video is amazing! I can't believe she takes 6 at one time!! I WISH and can't wait for the day Lil' Chris takes his enzymes w/o applesauce!! How old is Lucy? Lil' Chris is 2 1/2 and refuses to put an enzyme in his mouth w/o applesauce. Any tips for me???

  3. I just showed my husband this video. He was amazed too for her being almost 2!!!

    Way to go Mom!!! :)
