Ry's 1st Official Pediatrician Visit - 11 Week Measurements

So for Ry’s age, weight, length, and head circumference, Ry comes in at 39% in head circumference, 55% in length, and a very low 17% in weight. 11 weeks = 10.1lbs, 23 ¼” long, and head circumference is 39cm. She didn’t like her shots, but only cried for a minute or two. She eats about 22-24 ounces of formula a day, but should be at about 28-32 ounces. Pediatrician says she has some reflux, so she will go on a prescription for that, but did note she looks great, so no worries here!

Possible Future of Valve Replacements

I saw this posted on a CHD support site. It appears doctors in Boston are having success with nonhuman expandable valves. This could change the face of valve replacement for CHD kids!

It has given me a reason to smile. I would love it if Ry only had to go through one more OHS!
