The New Normal

Today was a big day in the O'Neil household. No, it was not nearly as big as a month ago but big enough for me to feel the need to write about it!!

We had our follow-up appointment with the surgeon today. It has been almost a month since Presley's surgery. Dr. C was very impressed with how well she is doing. She is eating two more ounces each feeding and has added one more feed per day. Woohoo!!! Her heart beat is just as normal as can be. Amazing!!! She weighs, wait for it...12 pounds and 2 ounces. But let me just tell ya, she looks fatter than that! Can I just say how excited I am to hear all this great news!!

And this great news leads to happy endings! Because, now we can stop the medication she has been on for the last 6 months! And we can start mixing her formula regularly now!

I am so thankful for Dr. C. She may not have the best bedside manner but she can perform an open heart surgery with the best of them. I am thrilled to start this new routine with my baby girl.

LOL--I agree about her bedside manner! But you're right--she can perform a mean heart surgery!

I'm so glad you're on the other side now! :)
