We’ve had a few of these for both Nate and Ben in the last month or so:
Ben had a follow-up-tube-feed visit with his pediatrician. He weighed just under 20 lbs and was 30 inches tall. His doc says that he is growing very well, and we can continue what we’re doing with his tube feedings. Also, we seem to be doing OK with managing his constipation.
Ben will need to have an ABR done under general anesthesia next month to adjust his hearing aids, so we recently had a “preop” visit with the anesthesia clinic earlier this month. It took a VERY LONG TIME, but it went well, and Ben actually weighed 21lbs at that visit. Hopefully Ben will have his test and will recover quickly from the anesthesia, and be able to come home right after the test.
Nate had his 6 month well child visit. He weighed 19 lbs 12 oz, and is doing well. He had a cold at the time of the visit (which eventually required some amoxicillin since it lingered for weeks), and is on target in terms of his development. He still has eczema which we manage with moisturizers and triamcinolone cream. He got 4 shots (Pentacel, Prevnar, Hep B#3, Influenza), and one oral vaccine (Rotarix).
Both Ben and Nate will have well-child visits at the end of April/early May. Right now they are both healthy, and I hope they both stay that way so that we don’t need to see the doc before then.
