Last week Logan went back to the pediatrician yesterday for a weight check and hewas 6 lb 13 oz. That means he has gained over a pound since he has been home. I couldn’t believe it. My first (healthy) son didn’t gain weight that quick. They couldn’t believe his NG tube was out and how good he is eating.
This week Logan went back to the cardiologist and it was good news again. He is now 7 lbs 3 oz. His weight gain makes all the Dr.’s very happy. Dr. Patel said his color looked good, his oxygen was where it should be and he didn’t even need to do an echocardiogram. He reitereated that it is going to be up to Logan when he needs surgery. When his oxygen levels are in the low 70’s that is when we need to do a heart catherization to see what is really going on and then when his oxygen is in the 60’s he will need surgery. Currently, his oxygen is averaging in the mid 80’s.
He is starting to sweat quite a lot when he nurses. All that hair just becomes drenched but I guess its because nursing for him is such hard work. So we have decided to bottle feed half the time to give him a little break. He is also starting to pant more than even two weeks ago which is to be expected. Other than that you would never know anything was even wrong with him. He is becoming more and more of a little person. He can see more and recognizes our voices.
He even has begun to coo, which is the cutest thing ever.
