Mia and I made the trip to LA today to have a final check up with the neurosurgeon that did her tethered cord surgery back in October. He was pleased with how she's healing, her scar looks great. We have an appointment in December to see a Urologist to follow up with her bladder and bowel control. We continue to pray that there would be improvement, but trust God for whatever His plan is.
Both Mia and Calvin got weighed today and they are a little bit heavier. Mia has finally reached 30 pounds, Praise God! This is huge because well, because we are such a slow weight gainer. Calvin is close behind at almost 27 pounds. We've had some struggles with our bowel management over the past month since we've been back from Cincinnati and when Mia got sick we took her off all dairy and noticed that bowel management got better. Well, since then we've kept her off of milk, but have allowed other dairy products and things seem to be a little better, but still not quite right. She's also been eating so much better. We have no clue if there is a connection, if she really does have an intolerance to milk/dairy, but we are super pleased to see the scale moving in the right direction finally. Praying for wisdom on getting her bowel management perfected to keep her clean for a 24 hour period.
Calvin got his hair cut today for the first time in months, since the beginning of the summer, I think. For some reason he has a fear of getting his hair cut, but the gal who cuts Brad's hair came over and cut Calvin's at our house. He cried the whole time, you'd think it was the worst experience in the world. He looks like such a cute little man now, I will have to take a picture and post it. :)
