GI doc

Tomorrow we add a GI specialist to JAM's team. It's about time. We hope to find out why he has vitamin deficiencies, isn't growing well, and has severe bowel pain almost daily.  More to come, I'm sure.

In the mean time, JAM is enjoying our house. In addition to adding a GI specialist, tomorrow is also the day our house goes on the market. Since the floors are swept and polished to perfection, we've taken down anything to bar his way and are allowing him to explore almost the whole house.  He's enjoyed it immensely and is so proud of his crawling ability. He's getting really good at getting everywhere. He even managed to wedge himself under our bed, a feat that was just traumatic enough for him that it is something I hope he won't repeat.

We've even practiced going up and down stairs. He doesn't quite have the strength to do it alone yet, but he's getting the hang of it and is so proud of himself.

His lungs suffered for a few days from either a cold or our cleaning spree (likely both) but he's back on track now.


  1. I loved reading your post on preemie babies 101. A great reminder that miracles come in many shapes and sizes. After two high risk pregnancies and a 27 weeker and a 35 weeker, I'm always in awe of my friends who have healthy, full term babies. Life is a gift! My 27 weeker was 1lb 9oz with a 159 day NICU stay so looks like we are similar with some numbers. His glasses are adorable, my Jack got them at 1 year old (he had ROP as well)

    1. Tricia -- your sons are adorable!!! Thanks for posting.
