Doing great

Charlie had two doctor appointments yesterday. Both went really well. The first was with Dr Book, his GI doctor. His liver is a bit softer and smaller. Also, his labs look the best they ever have. Total bilirubin is 0.1 and ALT and AST are 30 and 50. I had never thought his liver enzymes would be anywhere near normal. We have been so blessed with Charlie being this healthy.
His second appointment was with Dr. Eborn, his family doctor. He now weighs a whopping 14 pounds and 12 oz. This is still around the 5th percentile but he is growing on schedule so we are really happy with it. Everyone keeps telling us how good he looks. We are even starting to see some fat rolls on him! Yea!! We love fat babies:)

Infection free

Charlie's had a heart echo on Friday. Fortunately there were no signs of infection! Also, later that day he was able to get his PICC line removed. Good day overall. Since then he has been doing really well. He will be off of steroids on Wednesday.
He has been growing quite a bit and is coming closer to catching up with his sis.

Dec 3, 2007

Updates so far: Charlie is still on IV meds and will have his PICC line until Friday. Also, we had to reschedule his heart echo to this Friday as well. Unfortunately, he will have to be sedated for the echo so I am glad he will still have his PICC line. He's had enough IV pokes already.
Overall, he is doing really well. No more fevers and he's been feeling okay. He's still on the small side but is growing and eating well. We are sure happy to have him home.
