I'm SO behind on my blogging. 

Carter's still just chugging along.  We've managed to get him off of the continuous feed at night, so I've got him on several different feeds throughout the day where I'll feed him as much as he'll take through the bottle and push the rest through his G tube. We need to get that little belly stretched out a bit!  He's handling it well, but it's hard to tell if his acid reflux is getting any better since he really didn't complain about it before.  I keep listening for the little whistle, and it still makes an appearance, but with as bad as his airway looked it's going to take awhile to heal. 

I took him to the Endocrinologist today, and she doesn't think that he has any issues with his Adrenal gland.  She's getting some bloodwork done to be sure, but said that she'd most likely be calling me in a few weeks to tell me that we don't need to go back to see her.  I'd love crossing that doctor off our list!

Tomorrow is our appointment with the Orthopedic Surgeon.  I'll handle anything that comes our way, but would LOVE to hear that Carter doesn't need surgery on his spine.  I'll update again tomorrow!

It's always nice to be able to cross one more doctor off the list. Isaac has hypothyroidism so we see the Endo regularly. I'll be thinking and praying for you as you take Carter to the appt. tomorrow. I like the new look on your blog!
