At Micah's 9mo. checkup yesterday, he weighed just 15lb 4oz. This is not good. He was 15lb 13oz when we checked him into the hospital on 9/28 and he was underweight then even because he was so dehydrated. I think he had hit 16lb at some point. Way back at the end of August he weighed 15lb 3oz. There are a few contributing factors, primarily related to his illness, the hospital stay where he didn't get much nutrition for too many days (he wasn't tolerating it, and then when he did, his tube got clogged so he went another 24 hours without food).
Back we go for more weight checks. No big deal, really, because I have to take him back for more shots anyway. He's behind on his immunizations and I don't like to subject his little body to more than 2 shots per visit.
One of these days I'll get back to posting tidbits about Down syndrome...
