The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

And the one you’ve all been waiting for: a weight update!

Posted on: December 28, 2004

Shoshanna had her first non-hospital medical visit yeaterday – a condition of them letting her out the end of last week was that she be seen by her pedi Friday or Monday. Since Dr. O’Brien is out of town, we got an appointment with a nurse practitioner who does pediatric work for yesterday morning. Shoshanna has been declared to be darling, to weigh 5 pounds, 3 ounces and some change (up 2.5 ounces since her release from the hospital), to have a “strong suck” (she needed to eat during the appointment), and to have rather impressive elimination skills (we only had to change two diapers in the 45 minutes we were at UHS…). Today we’ll get a visit from the visiting nurse, tomorrow from a respiratory therapist from the oxygen/monitor service, and Thursday we’ll see the pediatrician for the first time. So much for fewer doctor’s visits!
