You Were Right On The Money

Today Noah had a check up with Dr. Downey (who was VERY wonderful so he must have forgiven me!)

Dr. Downey said Noah was doing WONDERFULLY! His incisions are healing nicely, his circumcision looks great! (He said that most look really bad for about 3 or 4 weeks but Noah's looks great after only 8 days!) He also mentioned that the pathology report came back and was positive for scaring and gallbladder disease and it proved that it had been having repeated blockages. VINDICATED!! After being told it didn't need to come out and yet, I insisted.... Dr. Downey told me "You were right on the money. It definitely needed to come out."

Noah really is doing great. He has already started eating more (tons more), he doesn't need any sort of pain medication (not even Tylenol), and we switched back to the Nutramigen to give his bowels time to heal from the Diareah so hopefully we can switch back in a month or so.

Dr. Downey also mentioned that we don't need to do anything for Noah's communicating Hydrocele unless he develops a hernia. Which I really doubt will happen. But if his scrotum still grows and shrinks when he's a year, I should give him a call and then maybe we will look into fixing it. But for now... there is absolutely NO reason for us to even worry about it. So that was a huge relief.

Other good news... Noah's Cyclo level is back where it is suppose to be. Turns out we must have had a bad bottle. I have to call the manufacture and send it to them for testing. Because as soon as I had switched bottles his level almost went to zero even though we had increase his dose dramatically. But now with a new bottle, he is back where he is suppose to be and there doesn't seem to be any signs of rejection that was caused by the low level.

I am interested to see what the manufacture says though.


  1. Glad everything is going so well!
    I got your Christmas card today. Absolutely adorable! Mine when out in the mail today.

  2. It will be interesting to see what the manufactureer has to say about that!
    I'm glad Noah is doing so well. Eating is always a good thing! Keep it up!

  3. What a wonderful report. You are continually in our prayers. I know this will be a special holiday season for you and the family being together and well. We love the photos of Noah on the web. He is darling.
    Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas. God has given you all such a precious gift. We love you. Aunt Marilyn & Uncle Bill

  4. I am so glad to read that Noah is doing so well. I think Dr's. really need to not discount a mothers intuition on what is best for her child. I am glad that it really was his gallbladder and you were vidicated. He has come such a long way in these past 6 months and I can only imagine what A MERRY CHRISTMAS this will be for your family.
