We had our 4 month well baby check today and got a DTP vaccine and her Synagis vaccine. Her pediatrician is very happy with how well she is doing developmentally as she is already doing most of the 4 month items and even some 5 month things. I keep hearing “if I didn’t know already what she had been through, I just wouldn’t believe it.” How that makes my heart burst. She weighed in at 12lbs, 12.5 ounces and 24 3/4 in long. She is just a little bit below 50% for weight and solidly in the 50% percentile for height and head. The Dr is happy with her growth. I feel like we won the lottery that she is doing so amazingly well.
It feels like we left the NICU a lifetime ago even though it only has been about 2 months. After the appointment, I was thinking about the day the doctor was trying to tell me we were running out of options if she didn’t respond to the Viagra and how ECMO might be off the table soon and how he was trying to tell me that things didn’t look great and look at where we are now. I am so thankful. Is rejoiceful a word? 🙂
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
