jarenemum
Mom to 26 month old baby girl. Born at 33+weeks. Severe GERD, dysphagia (even to saliva), central hypotonia. Unable to do MRI due to requirement for G.A. and intubation risks. Docs mentioned chin is on small side which does not help with swallow. Currently 10.6Kg and 83cm long. Able to sit independently, pull to sit and sit up on her own. Able to stand with support and pull/push to stand. Can cruise. Started to crawl on April 1st 09. Babbles a lot but not saying real words yet. On early intervention programme. Communicates with a lot of gestures and finger pointing. Very intelligent. Swallow study done on 11/9/08 shows no initiation of swallow but is allowed to continue with food tasting which she thoroughly enjoys. Second swallow study done in Jul 09 shows she can swallow 2 teaspoons out of 4 tea spoons of yoghurt given. But it shows some muscle coordination issues between oro motor, throat and sphincter which causes food to queue up prior to entering stomach. Feeds through nasal gastric tube. On 3 times a week private speech therapy with vital stim since June 09 and once a week Physio with local hospital. We practice with her everyday on our own which saw more progress. Couldn't get into our preferred special school for EIP due to lack of teachers and long queue for spaces. Am looking for alternatives now.
problems adding photo to signature
Anyone knows how to make photo show on signature? I have a pic of my girl on flickr and I simply pasted the url onto the http:// section for image source in the signature area. But the pic won't show. Help!

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
Instructions from help menu
I am sure you already read this, but it is the only way I can get mine to work each time. I just follow step by step their example.

* Do you want to use pictures to your postings? Please do this carefully - incorrect code will make every topic you touch disappear and nobody will be able to see them. Log in and view your profile. Scroll down and click to change your profile. Use the "Picture" field in your profile to specify an image. Don't put images in your signature field - Special characters or HTML coding in signatures makes postings disappear. If you are using photobucket or a similar service, they give you an HTML string to copy. It looks something like this: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Don't copy the entire thing. That is what was causing problems. Just copy part of the img information. In the above example, you would copy this: //i193.photobucket.com/albums/z25/Kmom_2007/KLMMay-June07024-2.jpg

If u still can't get it, post your code from Flicker and I will try to help.

I am not very good at this stuff, but I keep trying till I get it. However, my husband is a computer genius and can figure it out in about 2 sec.

oops, I was trying to post the code they gave on the example and it popped up as a picture. Guess I should have added quotes or something. LOL

Maybe adding quotes would let u see the code and not the pic. I will try.
