With Dr. B's help there are a few things that we are going to begin doing. First, we are going to revisit the cardiologist. Earlier when I decided that we no longer wanted to spend time in the doctor's office we had no idea that Magdalena would be at the point she is today. We think that it would be good to see what has changed so that we know when minor things occur, such as colds, what we can do without hurting the heart worse. Second, Magdalena is going to have a swallow test done on Christmas Eve morning to see what thickness she can swallow. This will allow the speech therapist to know how to help Magdalena take a bottle better and maybe....take a bit of food. We will have to wait and see! There are a few other interventionists that Magdalena will begin to see to help her improve physically!
I am not feeling overly hopeful. I feel proud. This is the proudest that I have ever felt in my life. My little girl is such a fighter.
Uncle Stephen and Loli got some of Caroline and Emma's old clothes out for Magdalena to borrow since she has outgrown her Premie clothes. We had to roll the sleeves up a bit, but I think she feels more comfortable in these clothes!
Look at Magdalena being a big girl taking her immunization by mouth! I think this nurse was surprised that I wanted to take a picture!
Magdalena's new tube requires the feeder to hold up the formula-filled syringe. It really doesn't have to be held this high, but look at Papa working so hard! The picture is kind of blurry because I had to sneak to take it!
After her doctor visits we went to see Kameron. Magdalena met her once before when she first came home, so it was like meeting her for the first time. You can tell how much she likes her! Look at that face! When I picked her up she started to be a little restless because she wanted to stay there!
