First Home Health Visit

          Garrett’s first home health visit went very well.  Thank Goodness!  I have been sweatin it – mainly about his weight and blood pressure.  If he did not gain weight that is NOT GOOD and I really do NOT NOT NOT want to be readmitted to a NICU anytime in the immediate future.  Let’s just say it wasn’t a problem.  When we left the hospital on Saturday he weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz. – today at his home health weigh in he weighed 9 lbs. 4 oz.  I think he definitely didn’t lose weight J. 
                His blood pressure was also GREAT.  Very in the normal range.  It has a tendency, as with most CDH babies, to be too high.  But it was good today!  His heart sounded good as well.  I told the home health nurse she can come by anytime she wants if she is always going to give me such good news!
