Doctor Appointment

One of my favorite baby pics of Froggy.

We had our (every-eight-week-pulmonology-appointment) today! And despite the three hours in the doc's office, plus 2 1/2 hours of commuting, the news was great!!!

Froggy is 19 lbs, 13 ounces and 29.5 inches long. She's in the 10 percentile for weight and above the 25th percentile for height! Her lung function is 100% and the docs couldn't be happier!

We had some issues with her malabsorption, but we've adjusted her enzymes and we'll add some high-calorie shakes to her diet to put on the pounds. Froggy is now on two different types of Pancreatic enzymes, and that should help balance her absorption of fat and carbohydrates.

On the way home from the docs, we got stuck in horrible traffic and Froggy screamed bloody murder for an hour and 1/2. Stupid mommy forgot her pacifier. I realize she is 14 months and now is the time for weaning, but not after a flu shot, throat swab, and 3 hours at Children's Hospital. The poor baby just needed a little comfort and today was not the day for it. I felt horrible!!!

When we arrived home, we found cupcake wrappers around the house. Buddy (the dog) had jumped on the table and eaten four chocolate cupcakes that our neighbors baked for us. I was too tired to scold him, so he escaped with an "oh Buddy, I'm glad you had a good day!"

And now, I'm off to bed. Our baby is healthy and happy! As we approach this Thanksgiving, we truly know what it is to be thankful!

Glad to hear such a good report! And I don't mean Buddy's score---although I'm sure his friends and other chocolate lovers would think that's like winning the lottery. Personally I would not get excited over a chocolate cupcake. Pumpkin pie, however, is a different story. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving---we did. FAlalalala
