Froggy's Clinic Appointment

Yesterday we had our arduous day at Children's Hospital - yes with travel time and stopping at the pharmacy after, it was over seven hours. Froggy was abnormally good. Wooo hooo! I was exhausted and hoped she would crash early. But without any physical exertion all day, this little hyper Frog stayed up til 10:30pm.

And more good news. Her lungs sound perfect and she gained a half pound. From the nurse, to the Pulmonologist, to the Nutritionist, the consensus was "She's doing Maaaaarvelous!"

She was 28 pounds 13 ounces (a tad above the 25th percentile). And you'd think with seven hours I would have remembered to write down her height, but nope.

Her vitamin levels are wonderful, kidney, liver function perfect. Wooooooo Hoooooo!




We will hear about her sputum culture later in the week. So think good thoughts that nothing grows on her little petri dish.

Happy to know she is doing so well! Those CF appointments can be sooo draining. If you have any tips on beefing them up, please send them my way. Our appointment was on friday, and Ojaio was a little below the 25th. Now we're supposed to add heavy cream to her instant breakfast milk combo. Yikes!

Thanks Elise.
Some of the stuff we have to give them feels so wrong sometimes. As you said, I too will do whatever it takes to avoid another surgery! I'm going to ask them about that Duocal.

I read your post on Google Reader the other day and rejoiced with you. Now I'm finally getting around to commenting! That is such good news. Ella is having to take some supplemental iron; otherwise she's had good checkups too.

I do hope for you all that her cultures stay clear too.
