Nurse's Report



Everything looked good yesterday with our visiting nurse. Lindsay weighed in at 7 lbs 11 ounces! That is almost a pound since we have been home! She is taking the bottle well and packing it on apparently. :-) We thank God everyday that she is doing so well. I think he hears a few hundred of you out there as well!
We have an appointment on Tuesday with the cardiologist and Lindsay will have an echocardiogram and EKG done to check things out. We are crossing our fingers that we don't come across any problems or concerns.
Today was a great day at home with the family and then this afternoon we went to see Patti for our photo session. I just can't wait to see what wonderful photos that Patti was able to capture. She said some will be posted on her blog this evening sometime. So check her blog out to get a sneak peak.
We have had a few people ask when her next surgery will be. Well, the answer to that is that we don't know either. It will depend really on when Lindsay shows signs that she is ready. The second is typically performed between 4 and 6 months of age so we are thinking this might take place late fall. Just too early to say right now.
The photo above is Lindsay from last Saturday and yes, Daddy got inked once again with baby #3! The boys' names are on his back and Lindsay is on his shoulder. I think this one turned out great and just wait to see what photos Patti got showing it off!
Thanks again for the prayers and I will have another update very soon!
Have a great weekend!
Love, Suzie

It is so great to see how fantastic Lindsay looks!! I am impressed she is taking down the bottle and gaining weight. Most hlhs babies don't do that well!! Love the pictures taken of Lindsay and your boys!
