Dr. Pulchaski (Jack's cardiologist) called this morning. He had written orders that we needed to come in for an xray this week, but they couldn't schedule us until Monday so he called to make sure he didn't need to work us in sooner. From our conversation he felt like Monday would be fine. He wants to check things out, but doesn't think we need to worry too much. We just have to try to pack on a few more calories so the kid will grow. Too bad it doesn't work for me to eat the extra calories and have them pass into his milk. I could definitely do that. Getting him to eat more real food that has any sort of flavor - now that's a challenge.
We decided to switch to Dr. P after Jack's last surgery and I'm really glad we did. I feel like I'm a lot more on the same page with him than I was with his last cardiologist. He may look 25 years old, but he really knows his stuff. When we first met Dr. P I hated him, but that's because he's the one who gave us Jack's official diagnosis when we were pregnant and sat us down in the "bad news" room. (I hate that room.) He was very frank about the seriousness of Jack's condition and made us very sad. But ever since that first grim visit he has been very pleasant and optimistic and now I'm a big fan.
