Kevin’s latest cardiologist visit was yesterday. He weighed in at just over 11 pounds now, which puts him at about the 15th percentile for weight. He’s still in the 5th percentile for his length (I forget his actual length). He is now three months old, and has spent more time at home than he did in the hospital! The cardiologist was happy with his weight gain. The gain in weight means his target eating volume for the day went up, and they also increased his medications to better match with his new weight. His chest x-ray didn’t look improved since last time - his lungs might look slightly wetter. This could be because he came off one of his diuretics too quickly, so they went up on his Lasix a bit more. It was nothing to be concerned about - they are just trying to adjust the medicines to be the correct dosages for him. He goes back to the cardiolgist again in 6 weeks.
He continues to be a happy baby most of the time and is becoming more alert of his surroundings. He loves to look at lights and ceiling fans. He recognizes voices and really responds to our voice and Emily’s. He’s starting to really fill out his 0-3 months clothes - he’s even out-grown a few!
