Pediatrician

What a cute face!
Jack went to the pediatrician today. It was our first jaunt out in public other than being at the hospital. Carrying around his oxygen tank and getting him loaded and unloaded was much easier than I thought it might be. The doctors office if very close by, and I really liked Dr. Mashkuri. We got her name from another HLHS family since we wanted to have a doctor who was already familiar with this condition. She was very nice and she also called Jack a rock star. We love to hear that from doctors. Jack wasn't too thrilled to have someone taking his temperature and bugging him again so he threw a serious fit, but he cried long enough that he was totally exhausted and took a nice long nap for most of the afternoon. Again, the benefits of a feeding tube is that you don't have to let a good nap get disturbed by hunger pains.

Not sure if you know, but you are eligible for a handicap parking pass! It really comes in handy since the oxygen tank is soooo super heavy.

Love the picture - he looks so content, even with the NG tube and nasal canula! Glad your first "outing" went well carrying around the oxygen. Praying things continue to go well for you all. It's nice that you have a few HLHS friends around to lean on - all I've got are friends like you whose blogs I've found.

Heart hugs,
