Timmy had his well child visit today and was weighed, measured and stuck (lead test and hemoglobin). He is still very low on his growth curve, and very low on his oxygen saturation, but is doing well. The next scheduled Dr. visit is in 3 months. We are hoping to schedule a visit with a feeding clinic to figure out Timmy's nutritional needs, but really appreciate the relative low number of Dr. appointments at this stage in Timmy's life.
One of the CHD families that we keep up on and pray for just landed back in the PICU with their 15 month old daughter. The cause: a cold. Having had two surgeries and her own unique needs, a cold lands her in the hospital. It never ceases to remind me how blessed we are with Timmy. I know, I would see us as blessed if we had to be in the hospital every month, which really makes me glad for where we are.
Here we are!
Yes, a little surrounded by toys. Yes, with the cannula in because his oxygen has been a little low the last few days. Yes, laying still in his crib to help keep his food in him (he has had some regurgitation issues lately, nothing major, but we try to keep him still after eating to give his tummy a fighting chance) And he has the bandaid from the Drs. office from being stuck.
God is good and we know we are blessed!
