Who's this big girl?

Some exciting news- Marley continues to grow!

On Tuesday I took Marley to her pediatrician for a weight check. Perhaps it was all my wishful thinking, or your prayers or all the greek yogurt I force down her throat- but Marley has gained almost a pound and grown almost an inch in just 6 weeks!!!

Her official stats are 17lbs 15ozs and 27 inches. I'm so excited I'm going to go buy a convertible car seat to celebrate! Though she is still in the less than 1st percentile she is growing!

Finally, some good news!

Marley also got her seasonal flu shot. We also saw her cardiologist this morning for a repeat echo and follow up. Her pulmonary stenosis and aorta coarctation are still the same but she will most likely need another cardiac catherization sometime next year. This will probably happen at least yearly until she gets a stent placed when she is around 4 years old.

I also have all of her other doctor visits and procedures scheduled through the end of the year- Neurology, Orthopedics, hand surgeon, MRI, sedated hearing test, CT scan, ENT, Neurodevelopment and weekly OT, PT and communication therapy.

So glad she is growing! And kudos to you for having all of those appointments already scheduled. I'd like to consider myself an orgaized person when it comes to stuff like that, however I think I suck at it in comparison to you.
