Charlie's cold is subsiding. He still has a little cough, but the runny nose is a thing of the past. Plus, he's finally able to eat without gagging on snot and struggling to breathe.
The cold has put a damper on his nursing, but we're going to give it a try again this week. Since he's feeling better he's been putting on weight again so we have the all clear from the doctor to give it a try.
Today Charlie had a pediatrician appointment. He was 24 in tall (90%) and weighed 12 lbs 12 oz (70%). The pediatrician would like his weight closer to the 85% but was happy that Charlie is starting to catch his weight up to his height. We're headed in the right direction!
Charlie got 4 shots today at his appointment. Boo! While he did let out a good scream during the shots - he quickly settled down with a smug look of displeasure mixed with bring it on. The biggest issue of the day was getting the bleeding from all the shots to stop! With all the aspirin in Charlie's system he tends to bleed more than other babies during shots.
Overall a good report! We see the nurse on Friday, the cardiologist in two weeks and the pediatrician in...wait for it...wait for it...2 months!!!!
Appointments are spreading out a little - that's a great sign!
