So, it's been two weeks since we've had an update on the little man. This morning we went to the lab to get his follow up bloodwork done. His little veins weren't as cooperative this time around, and they had to poke both arms, but he was still a trooper! No crying again. Annika was nervous for him, it was so cute. She was concerned that the blood was leaving his arms!
I took the kids for lunch today at Boston Pizza. It was a celebratory lunch for Miss Annika. She has been dry for the last 5 nights, and last night she went to bed by herself so she couldn't get a diaper down from the shelf. She wore underwear to bed last night, and stayed dry!!!!! We pulled up to the restaurant, and she said,
"Mommy, I love you."
"Because I always say that when we go to this restaurant."
After lunch, we headed next door to the health unit for our final weigh-in until the doctor's appointment. I had been doing a couple of new things the past couple of weeks, and I could tell that Tyler was turning into a chunky monkey. We weighed him and he is now.........15 pounds!!!!!!!! What a load off of my mind. The health nurse wasn't too impressed with me. She asked me what I was doing differently, and I mentioned that I had pretty much weaned him and he was now on formula. The look I got from her, it probably would have severely injured me if that was possible. However, he HAD been a great sleeper, then all of a sudden we were getting up every 2 hours during the night, and I knew for my sanity and the safety of my children, we needed to get sleep. Tyler has now been sleeping 7-8 hours at a time, and I am a much happier mommy.
Later this week we go to the doctor to get the results from Tyler's bloodwork. Hopefully his iron levels are up and his liver levels are down. We shall see!
