Several of you guys have asked about Shepherd since my last post, so I thought I’d let all y’all (that just can not be correct) in on what’s going on with the little dude.
We got his blood tests back.
I swear, it seemed like they tested him for everything on the planet: lead, CBC, iron, HepB, HepC, celiac, and all sorts of other stuff I can’t remember.
It all came back totally normal. Except he is the tiniest bit anemic.
When I got the news, I realized that I’d kind of expected to hear more than that.
So I am thoroughly relieved that, so far, our little guy is just fine.
On October 16th, we will make a trip to visit the GI as well as the endocrinologist. Probably just more hurrying up to wait, but at least we’ll have him in front of a real live specialist for the very first time. And you can bet, I’ve got one heckuva list of questions.
Oh, and I weighed him yesterday and he weighed 25 pounds. That’s up 1.5 pounds since, well, ever.
Baby steps. Sometimes you have to celebrate the baby steps.
