The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie


Posted on: October 16, 2012


I could say that I was intentionally waiting until all of Shoshanna’s birthday festivities and related events were over with until blogging about it, but I would be lying. That I am blogging after all of those things happened is really just a symptom of how busy we’ve been.

So. Birthday Stuff. Shoshanna had so much fun with her roller skating party last year that we did it again this year! Grandma and Opa came to visit for the weekend before her birthday, which was also the weekend of the party. We had 13 kids and pizza and cake and video games and all sorts of craziness.


Her actual birthday was on a Tuesday, of course. She took homemade snickerdoodles to school for snack, wore her birthday dress, had an after-school playdate with G & J since after-school was closed because it was Erev Yom Kippur, and then went to the Rebels’ end-of-season party. After all that excitement, it was a good thing she didn’t have to get up at 6 to catch the school bus the next day.

On the way home from school

Grammy and Grampa came for their “birthday” visit over Columbus Day weekend. We went for a walk along the river, to tap class, had dinner with friends, and on Monday while M and I were at work, Shoshanna and her grandparents went to the science museum and then they took her to ballet.

And today was the last birthday “event” – her annual physical. She has been pronounced fit as a fiddle. We have been encouraged to keep her off of Pulmicort as long as we can and have been told under what conditions we need to restart it. We’ve also been encouraged to try to get her digestive system better-regulated through her diet and then try to wean her off of the Prevacid. “Hakuna Matata” is supposed to be her guiding principle when she gets worried about thing, per Dr. L’s orders. Oh, and for those playing along at home, she’s still denser than she is tall – 30th percentile for height and 75th for weight.

Hi I just want to say I like your post and can certainly relate! My LO is 12 weeks old but we also got a clean bill of health recently from a follow up kidney ultrasound and cannot be more relieved! Also, my little boy has reflux so I can relate specifically to the Prevacid issues as well.
