Checking In...



Hello everyone! I apologize for not keeping this page updated as much as I'd like too! Life has been busy busy busy!

Anyway, we went back to Vanderbilt for a weight check on Monday. Kennedy weighed in at 9 lbs 4 oz... only one ounce more than she was 10 days before :o(. Very discouraging! Her surgeon said that he is going to give her a little more time to start gaining before taking other measures. He said worst case scenario is that her blockage was not the ONLY reason for her failure to thrive and there could be more going on with her. If she doesn't start gaining soon, we'll start the lovely process of running more tests again.

Please keep Kennedy in your prayers that she gains enough weight to keep her doctors happy!! She's already been through so much, and she needs some down time! We go back to Vanderbilt again on March 4th to the GI clinic and then again on the 7th to the General Surgery Clinic for another weight check.

In the meantime she is eating eating eating! Last night she ate almost a whole jar of stage 2 baby food! I was shocked! We are finally getting the miralax down her too, we haven't seen any amazing results yet, but hopefully soon!

OK I guess that's it for now!
Enjoy Kenn's new picture up there, I got that hat for her at The Children's Place for 49 cents! I love a good deal! :o)

I sure hope that Kennedy gains some weight before the next check. I know how frustrating it is to see the numbers on the scale not go up much. That new picture of her is BEAUTIFUL! And what a deal on the hat. :)
