Jon Kent and Zoey had their yearly check-ups today. Nathan had to have a recheck of his lungs and ears. Here are the stats for Jon Kent and Zoey.
Jon Kent is 35 pounds, 39 and 1/4 inches tall. This time last year he was 32 pounds and 36 inches tall. He is average for weight but below average for height. We are going to keep an eye on his growth and make sure that he does stay on the curve because Kent's brother has a growth hormone deffieceny, so it does run in the family. There are a lot of hormone woes in the family actually.. anyway... otherwise Jon Kent checked out perfectly.
Zoey is 34.2 pounds, 39 and 1/8 inches tall. This time last year she was 28.8 pounds and 34 inches tall. She is above average on both. She shot up 5 inches in the past year. The pediatrician was amazed. Zoey also checked out well and got a clean bill of heath. God is so good to have blessed us this past year with healthy children!
Nathan got a recheck of his ears and lungs. Both are fine now. I did mention the sleepless nights and his poops being very watery without any substance (sorry.. TMI!!!). She asked how long it had been going on (3ish weeks) and when it started (when he went on the steroids and then the antibiotics). So she said she wanted a stool sample (Nathan gladly obliged). She wants to test him for Cdiff. Since all this started when he was on the antibiotics it is likely.. but I'm really hoping it's not. They will call us in a few days to let us know. What we will do from there if he does have it, I'm not really sure. So keep Nate in your prayers.
I'm doing better today. My nose is more clogged but Nathan did sleep a little longer last night.. 4 and half hours. So that was nice. I'm hoping he will get a routine down soon. And Bridgett.. I'm a cry it out kind of mom too (no flames!) when everything else has been done and none of it has worked.. but.. he's in our room.. so I can only handle so much.. ya know? Our only other option is to move him into the room with his brother, but I don't want to do that to Jon Kent. So we are toughing it out.. for now. Kent asked me the other night if Nathan's crib would fit into our closet.. lol.. But it won't.. trust me, I thought about it. We'll get it worked out eventually.. I hope.
