A+ for Jack

Everything went great at Jack's cardiology appointment today! Dr. P said his xray looked nice and clear so he no longer needs his lasix (meds that make him pee a lot). He wasn't sure why Jack is sweating so much when he eats since everything else looks fine but thought that maybe that's just what he does. They also weighed him and according to their scale Jack is 16 lbs 2 oz, so I have no idea what he really weighs. I liked what their scale said better than the one at the pediatrician so I'm going to believe that one.

As an added bonus, we got to go meet little Grant who is a 2 week old HLHS baby and his nice mom and dad, and we ran into Bryson who is also HLHS and 2 years old, post Fontan while we were waiting for Jack's xray. Oh, how we love the heart community. Hardy and I are headed out on another date tonight, this time to the Paul Cardall benefit concert, and we look forward to seeing lots of other heart families there.

And this one just for fun. Ha!

Yay Jack! So glad the appt went well today. He looks like an x-ray pro. We love hearing he is done with another medication. Have fun at the concert tonight--I would love to be there.

Too cute! Although I think Jack needs some sun, he's looking a little pale! See you tomorrow.

Thanks for commenting!

You have a little cutie. He is so adorable!

That is so nice of you, but she does not use that formula. She is actually on Similic Alimentum ready to feed only and she does nothing but drink formula all day. She is going through at least 2 containers a day.

But thank you so much for emailing and offering. That is so sweet of you!!!
