Dr Visit Update

I took Will to the doctor this afternoon. He went from 7 lbs. 3 (aff) oz. last week to 8 lbs. 5 oz. this week. I guess he is not spitting up as much as it looks like he is. We adjusted his dosage, and we have to go back in a week for an update. Since he is gaining a lot of weight, they aren't too concerned with the spitting up.

The surprising thing that happened is that the doctor heard a heart murmur. We have to go see a pediatric cardiologist on July 26th now. I guess this is pretty common, but I am trying not to freak out. With everything that went wrong with the pregnancy, I thought we were finally in the clear. Right now, I think I just need to get some sleep, and I won't be so upset by this.

Anybody have any stories to make me feel better? Julie already emailed me hers, so thank you!

  1. My Barrett (2 yrs) had that horrible problem when he was tiny. He had this horrid smelling and tasting medicine. I would lick my finger and dip in in sugar–give him his medicine and immediately stick my finger in his mouth–trying to chase that awful stuff. I finally gave out–and just used Mylanta! Good luck–poor baby–and poor mommy–get some sleep!!

  2. Yeah, the medicine smells yucky. I can only imagine how it tastes. He makes a funny face every time we have to give it to him.
