I had a Dr appointment today for my glucose test and regular check up. All is well and I survived the blood work (barely). I am a huge needle phobic and you would think as many times as I have been stuck or watched Noah get stuck I would be over it by now. Although it has improved dramatically (I can actually go by myself now), today it really got to me. I regained my composure after a short time though! The best part of the appointment is that I got the date for my c-section!! February 17th will be the big day!! I know it seems really early but since it is scheduled they always go two weeks early. That's two months from tomorrow! Yikes!
Zane had a rough weekend with strep throat but we caught it really early and he was started on antibiotics right away. He is now feeling much better and back to his old self. Only 3 more days left until Christmas vacation! I think he might be just a little excited about that....
Noah is doing great! He had an awesome therapy session yesterday and was showing off all of his tricks. He is still letting go of things and doing some free standing but hasn't quite yet tried to take a step. He has been eating great lately! We have been able to get almost 300 calories in him a day and he is still drinking up to 3oz of water/juice on his own. He is still getting 11-12 hours of continuous feeds into the j at night and water boluses of about 7oz during the day. He has started pointing at food that he wants and actually showing signs of hunger.
As long as everyone behaves, there are no Dr appts or therapy until after Christmas so we intend on relaxing and enjoying our families and each other over the next week. We still have lots to do to get ready for everything and I will make a public apology now for not getting Christmas cards out this year. I had every intention of doing so, but then just never got around to it.
Thanks for checking in on us!!
