Last week we saw the cardiologist. Things seems to be going pretty good on that end. They didn't do another echo, but after listening to the heart everything sounds good. We are thinking heart surgery closer to 1 year of age.
We also saw the pediatrician for Carson's 2 month check up. He has doubled his weight in two months!! We no longer have to fortify his milk. He is still having blood in his stools even with me off of dairy so we have to go see a GI doctor next Monday. Please pray this is something minor. The doctors do not seem very worried since he seems fine otherwise, but Mom is. He weighs 10lbs and is 21.3 inches. He is in the 50% percentile for weight and 25% for height on the trisomy 21 chart. He is on the 10-25% for weight and 10% for height on the typical chart. Trisomy 21 kiddos have their own growth chart so the doctor charts him on both charts.
Today we saw the urologist and come away feeling frustrated. Mainly because we were hoping for a definite answer to what was going to be done for the kidney and instead we found out they don't really know much more than we started with. We know the kidney is blocked, but we don't know where and we know it is functioning, but we aren't sure how much. The scan said 42% but the doctor seems to think it is closer to 20-25%. Sooo we have to do more testing. They are wanting to do a retrograde pylogram on him and a biopsy of some sort on the kidney. The question is whether to do the procedure and surgery together or do the procedure, digest the results, and than do the surgery at another time.
Carson is really such a huge blessing in our lives. He is such a special part of our family. His big sister Kaylee just adores him and we love seeing the two of them together. Carson has started smiling and it is sooo awesome to start to see his little personality develop.
