Our visit with the cardiologist

We had an appointment on Tuesday with the cardiologist. I was sooooo worried about that he was going to say to me. I really wanted to hear i was doing a good job. The last time we had seen Dr Su he was wanting her milk fortified. She only got that for a couple weeks until she her milk allergy showed up. So she has breast feed only. So I should not worry about what might be. Dr Su was so happy with her gain. He was glad to see we did not keep the feeding tube long. I basically pulled it right after she passed the swallow test. He said she is doing a great job with her growth and he is expecting her to be small. She is growing right along the growth curve. So Nevaeh is 3 months and 8 lbs 15 oz. Dr. Su did say that the VSD (hole in her heart) is not closing as he was hoping. So he is going to want to see her in 5 months. He will then talk to me about closing it if it is still there. He will also look at her aorta to make sure it still has good flow. I just can't believe we are not going back in for months. So over all the appointment was good and i am so happy she is doing well.

That is good news about her doing so well. It is also so cute about her being so small. Kylie is now a whopping 12 pounds at 11 weeks old. Funny how things turn out huh?
I will keep you guys in my prayers. I know I think about you allot.
