First Pediatrician Visit

Sidney's first pediatrician visit was this afternoon. We were highly anticipating what his weight gain would be. When he left the NICU, he weighed 6lbs 9oz. One week later he weighs...*drumroll please*...7lbs 9oz!! Wow, he gained a whole pound in only one week. He also grew an inch in length. He seriously never ceases to amaze me and his daddy. He's doing so well since he's come home. Being able to sleep in complete silence and for as long as he wants has really done wonders for him. He's really thriving. The nurses in the NICU told us this would happen...the atmosphere of the hospital isn't conducive to growing naturally, it's too noisy and he consistantly had bright flourescent lighting on him.

Next Wednesday, Sidney goes in for his first set of's gonna be scary. He's still on oxygen, so I hope it doesn't cause him to have breathing issues. Keep him in your thoughts.

Sidney has a little friend, Taylor, who is still in the NICU. It's possible that she may be having surgery soon to help her breathe better. She's been in the NICU since the day after Sid was born. Her wonderful parents want her to come home so badly, this surgery should be the ticket to get her there. Please keep this little angel and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this tough next week.
