Ethan had a 5 monthcheck-up today. His weight is 7 lb 9 ounces. He is still barely on the preemie charts and the ped wants them to his feedings by at least 3-4 ounces per day. They found that he has a hernia[:(] It will most likely require surgery. He will have a consult with a pediatric surgeon but not until like Sept. They want him a little bigger and stronger before surgery. Also, his Ped wants him to start OT and PT. He is not neccesarily delayed yet, but the ped thinks its good to go ahead and start with exercises and everything for his muscles.
But overall he is really doing good. I will see him again tomarrow for his brothers birthday party. I am so excited to see him again![:)]
