Appointments galore

It feels like we constantly running to this doc or that one. Right now he has 6 different doctors. Tommorrow we see the orthopedic doctor to determine what is going on with his hip. His primary doctor indentified a loose clicking hip at his 6 month appt, so this is the follow up to that. He will likely need a brace or possibly surgury, we should know more tommorow.

Then friday, he will meet with the birth to 3 program coordinator to start his assessment. Its a program thru the school district that provides services like speech, occupation and physical therapy for kids up to age 3.

Gideon also has his appt with the geneticist scheduled for next tuesday. So we should get some sort of answers as to what is going on there. Right now they are considering klippel-trenaunary syndrome, but nothing is definite yet. But that is a congetital malformation disease, somthing in how he developed in the womb. Time will tell on that one though.

And since his umblical hernia is getting larger, we now have an appt to see the surgeon to determine if we need to do surgery on his hernias sooner than later. That will be later this month.

I had him yesterday for another weight check and he is up another 4 oz! So while not as great as last week, still a definitive gain, woohoo!!! He is doing fabulous though, taken to solids really well. He now eats solids 3 times a day without a fuss. Most of the times a whole jar mixed with oatmeal cereal, to bulk him up. He loves his vanilla yoguart as well. He also is beginning to play to grab at toys,mostly to chew on but hey thats progress!

Thats all for now folks, God is good . . . all the time!
