EAR INFECTION

I never thought an ear infection would be good news but in Witt's case I think it is! His right ear is infected. Witt has been congested for several days. He is now on antibiotic for it. Melanie also spoke to the cardiologist and was told its normal for the heart rate to increase with pain. We haven't heard back from the pulmonalogist as to whether they want to see Witt because of this. Several good things took place today! First, Witt was able to be seen by his pediatrician and not go to ER! Second, we found out that his iron level has gone up. It was discovered to be low on the last ER visit. Lastly (although Mel may have a different opinion!) Witt "christened" her while being weighed. Of course I have a picture!!!



Also...Witt now weighs 12lbs 10oz!!!!!!!! At least the feeding tube and not aspirating is putting weight on him!

I'm not sure if I'm giggling more because of the ear infection, or the sharing of body fluids with Mel. Laughter is good medicine! Thanks! ~Mindy

Yeah! Great news. 12 pounds 10 ounces!! That is fabulous! Sorry,Mel! I knew boys did that but I was quite shocked when my sweet little baby daughter did that to me. I just didn't think that was possible!
You are all in our prayers! We love to see the pictures of Witt. He is so adorable! Melanie and Austan, you are two very special people. I think of you often. Your love,strength, and deep faith for God and your family blesses my heart. We can hardly wait for the time we actually get to see and hold Witt in person. We already love him so much! We love all of you and keep you in our prayers.
Bobby and Gayle
