ER trip #2
Ill make this short and sweet....
Mason didn't gain any weight the last week. I took him to the breast feeding clinic at our hospital for a weight check. He was 9lb 12oz still , took him back again the next day. He lost half a pound *NOT GOOD* but he ate over 4oz (great!) They think he is struggling more with his heart and using more calories then he is taking in. He was showing a few signs of his heart problems also so the nurse called Dr. Nelson to tell her what was going on....her reply..Go to ER. So reluctantly we went (I felt he was ok and what he was doing was normal for him besides the weight loss) ONLY to find out that he is fine . The 900yr old Dr. that saw him actually said to me " you know more about this then I do".......WOW thanks for the bout of confidence DR! So SIX hours after going to the hospital..we finally came home with a clean bill of health.
My thoughts: Mason likes to be at the hospitals on holidays...
Born on Easter weekend
Heart Failure over memorial day weekend
ER #2 on 4th of July weekend.
Please tell me there are no more holidays for a while!!!
Also ... If Masons weight gain doesn't pick up.... its surgery time.
