Witt had his pediatrician visit today. Dr. Lange thought Witt "looked" better than he ever has. Witt's lungs and heart sounded better. The concern is Witt's weight. He gained 4 ounces and now weighs 8lbs 12 ounces. Melanie and Austan were told by the genetic counselors when he was a couple of weeks old that he would make his own growth curve. They said that kids with genetic issues are normally smaller. The issue for Dr. Lange is to try to figure out Witt's growth curve. Witt is proportionally growing great...he's just small! He is definitely not malnourished. Melanie will take Witt in once a week to Dr. Lange's office for a weigh in. Thursdays will now become weigh in day! Please pray that Witt will continue to gain weight...that his whole body just continues to grow! Also, pray for Dr. Lange. He is without a doubt the perfect pediatrician for Witt. Amazing how God knew!!! Dr. Lange is so patient and spends so much time with Witt. I know he agonizes over every decision concerning Witt. Pray that God give him wisdom and peace as he tries to decide what is best for Witt. We desires God's best for Witt!!
