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!
