Obviously, Jake & I don't need any additional weight. Nathan, on the other hand, has his doctors all up in arms about getting him to grow. Monday night, Hollie from Kids Who Count, came and weighed Nathan.
Here are the stats:
Weight: 15 lbs 7 oz.
Height: 26 1/2 inches
Head: 44 cm
Hollie chatted with me about Nathan's growth and about other health problems Nathan has been having over this past month. The prelone (steroid) to open up Nathan's windpipe did wonders. However, after his 3 day spurt of meds, he did great for a few days and then things have gone back to where they were. I want to throw my hands up in the air and give up sometimes. Nathan gained a whopping 5 oz this month and has dropped to the first percentile. Hollie said to me, "Aren't you concerned about his growth?" as if it wasn't fazing me at all. I don't know what's up; I just sometimes get the feeling lately from the doctors and others that they think I'm neglecting Nathan. I'm going to be making a phone call to go in and see Dr. Bennett again soon.
Any suggestions or tips for packing on the pounds?
