We were in Fort Wayne for Boston's 2 month check up today. He is 5 pounds 8 ounces. They use a special Down Syndrome growth chart and since he is also a preemie he is still a little peanut - 5% in weight and 10% in height and 20% in head size in comparison with other DS kiddos.
They still want to do a sweat chloride test on him to rule out all forms of Cystic Fibrosis - thought I was done worrying about that one but I guess not. They scheduled that for Dec. 16th so please keep him in your prayers that those test results come back negative!
Over the next three weeks we will follow up with his his heart doc, lung doc, geneticist, eye doctor, and get his next RSV shot. We have our early intervention meeting on Thursday to start him up with PT, OT, and Speech - he also failed his hearing test in both ears so we will also need to repeat that.......so as you can tell December will be a busy month for our little guy!
