Another Day,Another Doctors Appointment

Today Brady went in for his 16 month checkup.I don't know about kids but he has a checkup every month.His stats were 12 lbs 11 ozs.I thought he was almost 14 lbs. but he was clothed at the neurologist so that was a fluke weight.I knew that was too good to be true anyway.He was still 28 inches.He grew 2 inches.His head was 38 and a fourth.So it's growing but it's not 39 like I thought.

They are still worried about his weight.He is growing in length but he still has chicken arms and is itty bitty.They think the tube will help and I agree.We need to get to the root of his feeding problems though.He swells up after eating and he is just miserable and cries.They said they should do a colonscopy and a biopsy of hos intestines.Something is causing him to be upset and I wish they knew why.They changed his milk to Neocate JR.I thought he tolerated the milk well.Well better than he is with the Pregestimil so we'll see how it goes.All in all it was a fairly good appointment.No more appointments this month which is good.

  1. Poor little angel! (((HUGS))) to you Momma! I hope if he gets a tube put in that it helps him with his tummy issues.
