Update on Brinson

This week is a busy one for The Brinson. Yesterday we saw Dr. Rossell (her pedi) and while they have her weighed in at 21lbs 1oz (its up from their previous weight) her height is 32 1/2 inches. The dietician sees her on Thurs, so that's where we've been posting the numbers from. She's in the 25th percentile for height, and the 5th for weight and height/weight ratio. This is NOT corrected. Yay!
So all was well at the exam except for her recurrent ear infections. We are on a new antibiotic, and will be going to see an ENT. I have a feelin we may be looking at tubes in the ears. But there may be other options, not sure.
Today we saw Dr. Coats, the eye doc. The good news is that the patching worked and her eyes are improved. We don't have to patch her anymore...WOOOHOOOO!!! The not-so-good news is that her eyes are still crossing, so we are scheduled for surgery on April 21. They are doing surgery on the eye muscle itself to change the position in the socket. Sounds fun huh? *Cringes* It's a fairly simple surgery, and is done as an outpatient.
I have to go the dentist (again!) tomorrow, and Friday Brinson sees the developmental doc, Dr. Williamson. I am curious to see what he has to say. I'll post something over the weekend with the results.
On a sad note....after 3 months, my mom is leaving Saturday to go back to Indiana. :( She has been such a humongous help and has really spoiled me. She spends alot of time with B, and I am not looking forward to the aftermath of her leaving. We are planning to go to Indiana during the summer at some point. It's been great having her here to spend time and to have someone to buddy around with. I hate seeing her go. :*(

Meme is just not allowed to go! Congrats on the good report from the pedi and the optomitrist, although the thought of surgery on "B" is scary, at least it is only a day surgery.

We love you guys!
