Dave worked from home today so he could come to the hospital for Corey's appointment. The taxi was late, again!, and we were a few minutes late. We were going to see Dr Primhak, Corey's Respiratory Consultant, he's such a wonderful doctor.
Well he thought Corey had done so very well, he was really pleased with him which pleased Mommy & Daddy as well! The main issue now is his feeding. He mentioned G-Tubes again and said if Corey wasn't eating sufficiently by the end of the winter it would be a real possibility. I guess i just have to live in hope now. It pains me so much that he might have to go through an operation again. If the G-Tube is purely for cosmetic reasons then i'm not sure i want it done. On the other hand if it will help in in the long run then i am all for it. I guess it's something we shall discuss at a later date cause right now i just don't want to think about it. he also decreased hid diuretics. We're to have them just once a day now, if his trace is fine in 2 wks then we can stop them altogether. We'll be drug free then, just his dalavits and sytron.
He was weighed and measured. Weight gain was poor but he's grown over 3cm since Aug!
He had his 3rd lot of immunisations while we were there and screamed the hospital down. Have you seen how big those needles are! Sheeesh! Apparently they have to use the same size needle as they do for an adult :-o
Anyways, he soon recovered after a cuddle from Mummy.
We have to go back in about a month for his Synagis shot(vaccine for RSV). He's being entered into a trial for the new version of it which is supposed to be better. He also has to have a flu jab at some point, going to the doctors for that hopefully.
Sue came about 3pm and dropped of the trace equipment. He saturated about 95% when she checked him so hope it's a little higher tonight. I'll let you know tomorrow how we get on.
Fingers crossed Guys xx
