Also, I forgot to mention it in the previous post but I have been concerned with Dylan's weight. When he was brought into the hospital he weighed the same as he did one month prior when he had his back surgery -14lbs 5oz. However, he did grow 3/4 of an inch and now measures 27" long. I was actually shocked to see that he hadn't gained any weight. He eats so much. He is currently taking in about 28-32oz of stage 3 baby food/day, his milk intake has significantly decreased to between 6-12 oz/day because he would rather have food. He also drinks water and juice during meal times, and he never vomits after meals. I don't really know what else to do. I try to feed him a good variety of veggies, fruit, meat, yogurt, etc... so I feel he gets a really balanced diet. I also add baby oatmeal to everything to bulk it up and add calories, and I tend to pick the food that already has the highest calories/fat/protein, etc. Why won't he gain weight? What is it about WHS that makes them grow so slowly? If anyone knows please shed some light, I would love to understand it more. Our OT suggested Duocal to add more calories. Does anyone have experience with this supplement? Or should I stop worrying and just let Dylan be Dylan?
So to change the subject completely - we got the first set of results from the CVS testing - NORMAL 46XY- that's right it's a BOY!!! We (Mitch especially) are very excited to be expecting another boy and of course relieved to hear that so far so good. We still need to wait about another week for the microarray results. The first set was just testing for Down Syndrome, and Trisomy 18 & 13. I feel relieved but not all the way, not just yet anyways. I will admit that I was almost crying at the thought of having to get rid of all of Hailey's adorable girl clothes that I have been saving for the past 4 years. Girl clothes are much cuter than boy clothes if you ask me. So there you go, that's all the news that I have to share. :)
