Update on Colin

Colin had a well-baby check appointment a week and a half ago, and while he has always been on the lower percentiles for height and weight, this time he wasn't even on the chart for weight. The doctor has some concern about this, so she order blood work to be done to test a whole gamut of possibilties. Some blood work came back from the lab immediatetly and showed everything to be normal. Certain tests, like the human growth hormone test, had to be sent out, but last night we got a call from the pediatrician letting us know that all the remaining tests came back normal. So, we have concluded that he is just a little guy. Our pediatric team here wants us to replace a cup of milk with a cup of Pediasure every once in while and come back for a weight check in a couple of months.
Here he is in the waiting room waiting to get his "wee bag' put on. He had to give a urine sample. I think the worst part of his day was taking the "wee bag" off. OUCH!Here he is after they took vile after vile of his blood! What a brave little trooper he was. Mommy was so thankful that Daddy was there to hold him in his lap while they took the blood.
Check out his new bandage!
