6 month check up

So much time has gone by since I posted last and I feel like that is a positive thing because that means nothing eventful has happened!

Daylen is 7 weeks post hemi-fontan and he is doing great! We can start treating him like a "normal" baby by picking him up however way we want! No more scooping! :) His aldactone has been reduced to .6 mL every 24 hrs along w Lasix twice a day and baby aspirin every other day!

Daylen weighs 16 pounds and is 26 inches long! His height didn't move at all so the pediatrician is wondering if they had a measurement error last time! His weight went from the 8th percentile all the way up to 25th percentile so he's slowly outgrowing the rest of the munchkins :)

Daylen can sit really well but still plops over after a few mins. He is now reaching and stretching for things and has a hard time sitting still! I also think a tooth may be coming soon! :)

Daylen has a cardio visit in 2 weeks along w shots tomorrow!
