Another Update

I took Chase to his 6-month pediatrician appointment today and his doctor was very pleased with how great Chase is doing! He said Chase was the happiest patient he'd seen all day, and also asked what I'd been feeding him since he's so adorably chunky! Too fun!

So here are his latest stats:
  • Weight: 16 lbs., 9 oz. (24th percentile)
  • Height: 26.5 inches (42nd percentile)
Yay, Chase!!!

He got his 4-month vaccinations today (one orally and THREE shots!) and won't need to have his 6-month vaccines until his next appointment when he's 9 months old. Did that make sense? Whatever. All I know is that this was the LAST BIG HURDLE (as far as I know -- I'm sure hubs will correct me) Chase needed to complete before we could "officially" release him from the bubble!!!!! He's still technically "behind schedule" on his vaccines but it's not enough to warrant keeping him (and ME! and LO!) locked up any longer!


So, if my math is correct... we saw Chase's cardiologist last week and his pediatrician today. He's not due back at the cardiologist until JULY 2nd (TWO months!!) and he's not due back at the pediatrician until he's 9 months old (July) so...


It's the little things! And I'm SOOOOOOOO happy my sweet boy is doing so well! Praise God!!!


  1. Praising God with you! You just keep on being a little chunky monkey Chase! :o)

    Selfishly, I'm so glad Chase is doing so well. It brings me such hope and joy that we can get through this and things will be ok!

    Enjoy your new freedom!!!! :o)

  2. I'm so glad Chase is doing so well and you get a break from the doctor's appointments. It will be wonderful to finally get to meet Chase!! Can't wait to see him!
