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!


  1. Great News!! No surprise he's thriving at home! I'm sure he's happy to be home with his loving family!!

  2. I'm glad he got a good report. Keep doing what you're doing SUPER MOM! :)

  3. Garrett is a SUPERSTAR!!! I hope you can bring him soon so we can meet him. I'm dying to hold that precious boy. Great news Janna.
