More Good News

This boy weighed in at 16 lbs 7 oz at the doctor tonight. WAAHHHOOOOOOO! He wasn't going to get weighed until tomorrow morning but #1 took him to our doctor tonight because he has an awful blistering diaper rash that is starting to ooze. We don't experience diaper rashes much with using cloth diapers and this one is a doozy. The PediaSure gives him really yucky diapers, and he's had diarrhea today. Dr. B (just our regular doctor, not the GI) said to let him know if it continues, but it isn't affecting his weight and he is well hydrated (He should be, he's getting close to 1,000 calories a day in liquid).
When the therapist called back this afternoon to schedule his next appointment she suggested we contact our physician (she saw both his BM and rash today and was concerned too).

THANK YOU for your prayers and we hope hope hope to be bringing more good news every time he is checked out.

what a cute little pig you have these days :) Sad for his little bum though. We used disposables over the weekend and Bug has some craziness going on too. Craziness.
