Final RSV Shot

Jack had his final synergis shot today. He was very brave and only cried for a minute.

The bad news is that he has actually lost some weight since his last appointment. Last month he was 14 lbs 15 oz and this month he's 14 lbs 9 oz. He's also been sweating a lot when he eats. I mentioned this to our pediatrician and she said I should call cardiology and let them know, just in case, since sweating is a sign of heart failure. I left a message and am waiting for a nurse to call me back. The good news though is that he looks really, really good. His lungs are clear and his liver is not enlarged, and despite losing weight his still has those cute chunky cheeks and a pleasant demeanor. Those are all signs that he's not in heart failure. So, I'm not going to worry. My mommy intuition radar is not going off, so I'm just going to wait and talk with the nurse and know that he's doing fine. I mean seriously, does this face look sick to you?

Here is Jack eating my cell phone and transfixed watching the computer screensaver. So easily entertained.

He is so cute! Give him a big kiss for me!! I am glad you guys are going on a date. We went on one tonight to visit with some friends from out of town. Dinner was delightful. But we had a treat of poop everywhere when we got home. Oh the fun! Hope your date is divine. You were such a beautiful bride. Still are.

Oh my gosh, he is so CUTE! I swear he gets cuter by the second. I bet he is okay with the sweating thing. That is what we just took Kylie in for, sweating, cough, puffy eyes, excess fluid, sleepyness, almost every heart failure sign, turns out she is okay. I know Dr. P says sweating means the heart is working a little harder. Also Kylie didn't gain weight for a while. She was about even for weeks then chuncked up to 16 pounds. I bet he is just fine. When is his next card appointment? May? Amiee, he really is so adorable. I love it. YEA for the last RSV shot. Did he get 5? Just wondering? That is so neat you guys hit 3 years (we hit 10 this year) YIKES! :) Glad you went out and I bet Jack swoons the babysitter with his good looks. Your wedding dress is so pretty. Hope you guys had fun, Oh ya good luck with cardiology calling you back. I had to call 5 times to get them to listen to me. I have the # straigh to the front desk, let me know if you need it. That way you bug them and they do something about it.
