We brought Brandon to the pediatrician for the first time this afternoon. He saw Dr. Sasson. He will have to go weekly for awhile because he is a preemie. He weighed 5 pounds 12 ounces according to the scale at the doctor's office. The doctor said that he looks good and his lungs sound good. He wants me to increase the amount of formula he gets to 65 cc's every 3 hours starting tomorrow, then 70 cc's the next day, and then 75 cc's the day after that and see how he does with that. He also wants to keep him on the oil that he is taking for extra calories.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
