We started out the day at the doctor's office for a weight check. Ethan weighed in at 11 pounds and 7 ounces. He gained just 5 ounces in the last 2 weeks, so Dr. Smith wants him to come back next week to check his weight again. We had just went to checking every other week.... We have to continue to monitor this because as with many PBD kids, eating/drinking and getting adequate calories/nutrition can be a huge challenge.
After the doctor's office we went to CAT to introduce Ethan to Jeff's co-workers. Ethan seemed to enjoy being the center of attention, until he had enough, and then it was time to go! :) We then made a quick stop at New Life Pregnancy Center, where I used to work, and saw the ladies there.
Then it was off to the pharmacy to pick up the prescriptions and then home.
In the late afternoon we got to visit with our friend Sarah B. who was home visiting from the Chicagoland area where she is serving God as a missionary and campus minister. Sarah, thanks for visiting and for all the prayers. I think Ethan enjoyed the visit from "auntie" Sarah. I know I sure did.
Please pray that Ethan will have a big appetite, that he will be able to eat without difficulties, and that he will continue to gain weight and grow properly.
