Appointments…

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.

  1. Hi Kristen,

    We definitely should meet when you have time. I can probably explain a whole lot better on the phone the whole situation with Hope. I do have to say that I will always love the care we all received in Akron. It is a wonderful hospital with great doctors and the support staff is excellent.

    email me at paula.novak@oracle.com and we can exchange numbers.

  2. Hey Kristen. Your son is so cute. And, you are correct, it does seems as though our kiddos have almost the exact same defects. My daughter is now almost 11 months old and is doing well except for her eating. We are still trying to get a handle on that. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. My email is aeblong2 (at) hotmail (.) com. You can also read pretty much all of it on my blog 🙂 Hope everything continues to go so well for your little one.
