Neurology and genetics appointment

Last week Daylen had an appointment with the neurology center to see how his growth and development was. They did a few tests on him and turns out he scored very well for a heart baby! His motos skills reached a high of 115% meaning he's doing things that babies a month ahead of him are doing! Physically he is measuring to be his age. They were very pleased with him and asked to see him again in 6 months! He weighed a good 17 lbs and 4 oz and measured 26 in long.

While at the neurology center, Dr. Escobar recommended we do a genetics test on him to see if his birth defect happened genetically or if it just happened. They can determine if our future children will have higher chances of having birth defects too. I am anxious to hear the results because I am not sure if I can handle another HLHS baby. As much as we love Daylen, its very hard to deal with and who is to say if the next one doesnt have a worst case of it. We will keep you all updated as soon as we hear anything in the next week.
