Clinic 12/12/12

E has been feeling great since we left the hospital.  This past month she has received her flu shot and her first dose of Synagis.  We're doing everything we can to keep her from getting sick these next few months!

Today was her 6 month clinic appointment.  We talked to them about the possibility of malabsorption over the last few days and decided to increase her enzyme dose.  She will now take 20,000 lipase units of Zenpep (or two 10k capsules) before every meal.  They also increased her dose of Axid to 1 1/2 mL, 2x/day.  This should help her stay on track with her weight gain.
Right now she weighs a little over 16 lbs which is great!
The dietician gave us a list of higher calorie baby foods that we can give her and also suggested adding rice cereal to her fruits and vegetables for extra calories.

We did the Pea Pod and a blood draw for her research study and both of those went really well.  This was a much better lab experience than the last one!

Now her appointments will be spread out to every 2 months so we don't go back again until February.
