Updates... scroll down for the pics...
Last trip to the GI docs was a good (and short!) visit. Karsie weighed in at 21lbs and not quite 32 inches long. Her growth continues to be good on the Boost Kids 1.5. Her site is off and on yeasty, and we have come to accept that she will probably struggle with the yeast and leakage as long as she has the large belly. The wonderful NP asked if we were comfortable to just limp along with the leaking and yeast until we can get through surgery (hopefully early summer and Christmas)... and then with a flat tummy, the GI docs can really tackle the feeding issues. We are okay now that we know that is the plan.
In other health news, we seemed to miss the sick season that took out most our friends kids in the middle of winter... instead we have been plagued by sickness the last month. Karsie has had another bout of ear-infections/colds/coughs... and we have both caught some of it as well. Antibiotics have been our friends, and Karsie is the only one to have avoided a shot of penicillin (OUCH!). We haven't been able to get her last set of immunizations, as we have been waiting for a 10 day window of health before taking her in... she seems to get right to 9/10 day mark and then get sick again. She might be scheming all this just to avoid her shots.
We are gearing up for our spring break... and Karsie's appointment with the plastic surgeon. We are hoping that Dr. Saenz will be able to make it to that appointment as well (or at least to see him within the same week). We will also be doing the March of Dimes: March for Babies this month... and are happy to be supporting that cause! There will be another post later with how you can support them as well!
Karsie's hair is now long enough to put it into piggys!
