Our Little Fatty


Kylie had a great doctor's visit yesterday.  She gained another 2 ounces and is now 6 pounds 8 ounces.  I really hope that we are on the way to some healthy weight gain.  We are so pleased.

Kylie also gave us a scare yesterday.  While practicing some bottle feeding, Kylie asphyxiated on some milk.  She had a really bad time of it, having a difficult time breathing, her coloring being very pale, and just giving us a very bad scare.  Hospice, as usual, was right on it.  They guided the grandparents (as John and I were at work) in what to do and our hospice nurse was hot on the way over to our house.  John and I have never had a longer drive home from work. 

After a very dicey afternoon, Kylie recovered (she is so strong) and is now back to herself.  We were scared for a while of her having fluid in her lungs, but after a day, she did not have any fluid left over.
