Just a quick post to say that we made it back from the specialist late yesterday evening. The appointment went well and Joshua was very good, even when they had to stick him for the TB test. The initial opinions were pretty close to what I was hoping for, he seems to be doing well but is small for his size and a couple months behind on a few developmental things. No one seems to be too concerned though as long as the bloodwork all comes back with the right values and we continue to make progress.
We really liked the doctor and will be happy to schedule the followup in six months which was her recommendation. It will be exciting to see how much progress we can make in that time and hopefully her "diet" will get him moving closer to normal in size and weight. The doctor basically told us to think of all the things we'd avoid while dieting (butter, fatty foods, cream) and feed those to our son:) Now we just have to make sure that we don't partake of too many of those things ourselves!
On a stitchy note, I did manage to almost finish one Christmas ornament (minus beading) in the car on the 5 hour ride to the appointment and get about half of another done on the way home. Pics coming another day.
Keep cool, we're trying to. We've got temps in the high 80's to low 90's with humidity to match. Don't you just love summer?
