Doctor's Appointment #2

Abby's GI appointment was equally positive.  She weighs a whopping 9 lbs 3 oz now, and the doctor was pleased with her growth.  Get this:  Abby is very nearly on the chart now for weight!!!!!  :)

Her g-tube looks good and the doctor increased her feeds a bit.  Now she gets 70 mls during the day and 30 mls continuously at night.  We'll go back in a month when she will hopefully get another increase!

Our next appointment is pulminology, but it's not for a few more weeks.  After we learn about her lung function, we'll be able to go to orthopedics and craniofacial.  That's when we'll learn about the surgeries Abby might have this summer. 

It's a lot to deal with, but I'm thankful that we're to the point where we actually can discuss things other than the airway.  It means that Abby is stable enough to move forward!
