8 Week Update, part 2
Yesterday at the pediatrician, we found out that we are 10 lbs!! While we are making progress, we dropped another percentile group... but Mommy feels like now that we are DEMAND feeding and not schedule feeding, we will soon catch up, as I expend a LOT of energy and even work up a sweat several times a day. No surprise, as I was VERY active in the womb as well. I got two more immunizations too.
We had to go get another blood panel done - Mommy spent two hours at the lab on the phone with the nurses and eventually made them talk to each other in person, to ensure we would not be repeating a test that she feels we have already done. The test we recently did was a Complete Metabolic Panel that came back normal. This test they call a Neonatal Newborn Fullscreen, which tests about 100 things, as the regular newborn PKU screen only tests for like five things that came back OK while we were in the hospital.
We also had our first photo shoot today for a collage they call "precious parts", and we will post the link on the blog for everyone to check out when they are ready. We are ready for Nana Debby and Grandpa Richard to come visit - we will have some fun things to post next week while they are here. They will be learning how to take care of me, so Mommy can work a few half days next week. We will celebrate Mommy & Daddy's SIXTH year anniversary next Saturday, and we are glad it will be a family celebration.
Keep praying for us as we await the results of our blood panel, while we hope that we don't find anything wrong, we are also hoping for some answers.
Love to all,
Braden, Brad, & Kodi
