Today, Dylan had a follow-up appointment with his pediatrician. He needed to catch up on his 4 month vaccinations as well as get weighed again. His doctor was concerned about his weight 2 weeks ago, as he had apparently fallen off of the growth curve. Throughout this whole surgery ordeal, he had lost a total of almost 2 pounds. That's quite a bit of weight for such a little guy.
So, he weighed in at 11 lbs. 1 oz. today, which is up 6 1/2 oz. since his last appointment! To be honest, I would have been completely shocked had he not gained weight...seeing as how our couch is now totally dented in on my side because I spend most of the day and half of the night sitting there nursing Dylan. He's a champ.
His incision as well as his chest tube holes and hernia scar are all healing very nicely. Here he is fresh and clean out of the bathtub tonight.
We're just going to keep plugging away with the whole feeding thing. If he keeps up his current pace, I would guess we'll be back in the 12 lb. range in the next couple of weeks. Go Dylan, go!
