CF Clinic Visit 5/7/08

Our visit went really well. We were there for about 2 hours. All the doctors were really impressed as to how well he is doing and how well he is growing. He is just under 21 lbs. and is a little over 28 1/2 inches long! The CF doctor said that he is growing so fast, that we have to keep up with him, so he upped his enzyme intake from 2 to 3 enzymes with every feeding. And since he will turn 1 before our next visit, he told us to stop giving him salt when he turns 1 and to up the Vitamax from 1 ml to 2 ml once a day. Other than that, they gave us some paper work we have to fill out and then mail in so we can go over it at our annual visit on June 4th. Wait a minute, he turns 1 on June 6th! So, we do have our next visit before his birthday! But maybe they don't do a check up at the annual visit. I don't know. I guess we'll find out next month. That's about it. It went very well, and Lil' Chris was so good the whole time :)
Oh wait a minute, there was one other exciting thing ...

Urrr...there you go again, leaving us hanging :)
That's great news about Chris' check up! I was curious of Nathan and Lincoln's weights at 11 months, so I just looked in their baby books...neither of them had a check up at 11 months, but at 12 months Nathan weighed 21 lbs 6 oz & there is no height written so I looked back at 10 months, and he was 29 3/4" long...by 13 months he was 21 lbs 15.8 oz and 31 1/2" long! Now Lincoln was the chunker, he weighed 23 lbs at 10 months, but by 12 months he lost weight, because he was very active and started walking at 10 1/2 months, so by 1 year he weighed 22lbs 12 oz, and was 31" long!
I checked to see at what age Nathan started crawling, and he was 10 1/2 months, he was pulling himself up all the time, but didn't start walking until 14 months, right before Lincoln was born.
Anyway, just a little comparing of cousins and milestones, in case you were interested!
