Synagis and saturations

Greyson went in today for his synagis shot and saturation check. Addison started feeling yucky with a fever like she had the day before right when we got to the office. Yesterday we gave her Tylenol and it went away and she was fine this morning. She had a temperature of 103.7 at the dr today and it was 103 yesterday as well. I was holding her when she did G's saturations so I didn't get to look at the machine. I was surprised when she said they were 87-90!!! She even put it on his other hand just to be sure and it read 88 as well. He didn't cry much when he got his shots either and he weighed 14 lbs 7 oz today so he is growing pretty good.

Addison took some Tylenol while we were there and not so willingly let Dr. Meyer check her out. With her renal history and the fact that she missed a day or two of meds that worried us. She was saying that her legs hurt and having me and Nate kiss them, but there is no rash anywhere on her. She also told me today that her potty hurt which had me worried that it might be another UTI. We tried to get her to go potty there but we had just gone so she didn't go. We took the stuff home with us and finally at 5 she went. I took it in and they did a dipstick test on it which was negative. They are doing a culture on it to see if it grows anything. I have to call if any new symptoms come up or she still has a fever after 72 hrs. I don't know what it is but I'd be happy if it cleared itself up.

No News is good news

Greyson has been doing Awesome!!!  He gained a pound in a week and as of last Tuesday was up to 14 lbs.  He eats like a pig and has Rice & Apple cereal 2-3 oz in the morning and straight Rice cereal in the evening 2-3 more oz.  He has started playing in his jumper and LOVES it so much more than Addison did.  He is full of smiles and giggles and is such a different baby than he was before surgery.  I can't believe how little energy he had and we didn't realize it.  I am still nervous all the time but slowly getting over it.

He now loves bathes which he SCREAMED through before.  I think he is ready to go swimming and Addison is so ready to go so I feel like a trip to the ARC may be in our future. 

Here is a progression of his scar it is looking VERY good!!
