CF Clinic Visit and Ultrasound Update

Despite my sleepless night, we had a great day! The ultrasound went quick. We were in and out in 30 minutes! She said that there was no evidence of any bowel obstruction! YEA!!! :) That was a big relief, but it doesn't mean that it won't still happen. She also said that all the measurements looked good and that she is just the right size she's supposed to be at this point! Ayla is 6 lbs. 4 oz. right now! No wonder I look so huge! LOL I asked her what her estimated birth weight would be and she said that they usually grow about 1/2 lb. each week at this point. So I have 3 weeks left, so that means around 8 lbs I guess. Lil' Chris was born 1 week early and he weighed 7 lbs. 9.5 oz. The lady also said that she is head down and face down and ready to come out:) We'll see if she decides to come a week early like her brother=)

Lil' Chris' appointment went well too:) His weight is over 26 lbs. which puts him in the 50th percentile, and his height is 33 inches which puts him in the 60th percentile! His BMI is 60%. The doctor says that's great! He doesn't think we should change anything! So, we are going to continue 3 Creon 5 enzymes for meals, 2 for snacks; 2 ml of Vitamax once a day; one 15 mg Prevacid Solutab once a day; and continue the Vest 2 times a day at 20 minutes each.

We got to see all our favorite nurses on our way out! One nurse asked if we needed any samples of anything, and I told her that we could use more of the Prevecid Solutab syringes. I told her my lil' story of how I put one in the dishwasher...big mistake....and the other one we have been using for months and months now. It just started not working properly. You have to push it real hard, and then sometimes it comes out SO fast and gets ALL over! One day it exploded in lil' Chris' face! I felt SO bad for him! I thought he was going to be scared of it after that, but luckily he wasn't. Anyway, I asked the nurse for more and she said "Sure no problem" and she came back with 4 of them! That should last us a while:)

All in all, we had a great day! We even stopped and picked up lil' Chris a slide since he was such a good boy all day long! I'll post pics of it later;)

Thanks for all the prayers. I guess I was worrying for no reason;)
PS. The doctor took a throat culture, but we won't get the results till next week. I'll let you know the results...hopefully normal, but he did just get over a cough.
