Ava went back to Children's Mercy yesterday for a vent clinic appointment and a PT appointment. She had some wheezing yesterday so the neonatologist decided not to make any changes to her vent settings yesterday but we are suppose to call her in a couple days when the wheezing subsides and then she will tell us what changes to make. For now we are giving her additional breathing treatments as she needs them. The wheezing isn't a major concern but just something we don't want to take any chances with. The cause could be allergies, weather, etc. and we realize she may occasionally have this. Her weight was 15 lbs. 1 oz. and we are trying to transition some of her feeds to Enfacare for more needed nutrients rather than always fortifying with Beneprotein.
Reese is still rocking on all fours but not crawling yet. The more I think about it the more I wonder if I'm ready for her to crawl. It's a whole new ball game when they start crawling. We definitely have some baby-proofing to do around our house! She is still receiving physical therapy through Infant/Toddler Services of Johnson County, as is Ava. It's great to have them come to our home instead of loading up for an appointment.
Upcoming appointments include another vent clinic appt. and OT on Sept. 13 for Ava. Reese heads back to the doctor for her 9 month check-up on Sept. 30. Until then...we'll continue to stay busy!
