Froggy Update

Froggy is not blocked!!! She actually gained a few ounces - and that was with an empty belly. We will not have to admit her, but we do have to figure out why she isn't hungry and what to do about it. Our Pulmonologist thinks her seizure meds are contributing to her appetite loss.

She's 41.5 months and is 29lbs 2 oz. That's 18th percentile in weight.

She's 38 inches tall - that's 45th percentile for height.

Because she's tall and skinny, her Body Mass Index is 14.2, which is only the 10th percentile.

Genetically, Froggy will probably have to fight her BMI for life, because FD is so tall and skinny. Which would be great for you or me, but we need some meat on this kiddo to help her fight off respiratory bugs. Ideally her docs want her in the 50th percentile.

Froggy was an angel at the docs. She was still for her x-ray, and took deep breaths for the doc. So proud of our girl!

Yeah for no obstruction!!! You guy's have been through so much drama lately. I'm sorry to hear about the pseudomonas, I know how numbing and exhausting that can be. Hang in there Froggymama!

That's fantastic news! So happy to hear it.

And it just figures, doesn't it? A girl finally gets to be tall and skinny, the envy of all the other girls around her, and even THAT is an issue to be dealt with.

Life's never easy for the female persuasion, is it?! :-)

Our DH isn't as tall as Froggy Dad, but even Azer is 50th in height.

Two years ago, Azer was stuck. Not cool. They had to do an enema. Also not cool, but it worked thankfully.

PHEW! We were worried! Glad it all came out OK.

Does it make you feel any better than Gabo is in the 5th percentile for weight?
