Whew...what a week!

I love you this much!!!!

We had a very busy week...actually couple of weeks.

Here are some updates:

Owen went to the pediatrician Monday for his RSV vaccine. He weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 18 3/4 inches long.

Tuesday we went to Indy to see the Pediatric dermatalogist...after an hour an a half waiting, we were examined and advised to watch them (the hemangiomas) closely-duh.

Wednesday we went to the ENT in Indy for Owen's ear check. After waiting over 2 hours, we were seen to check his ears and they showed occlusions in both ears this time (it was just his left before). Then we were sent back out to the waiting room for over another half hour before being seen by the student MD...he couldn't see in Owen's ears because they are so small. He had to consult with his "boss" a very elderly MD, who after we waited for for another 15+ minutes, who consulted another MD (probably a younger one) to see when Owen should have surgery to drain the fluid and place tubes. They decided to wait until he is 6 months old and reassess.

So, please PRAY his ears heal and he wouldn't need surgery, and would suffer no long term hearing loss or developmental delays from the current hearing loss caused by the fluid. We know he can hear us. He is even looking at us, engaging in active interest with us, etc. He even cracks some smiles and coos now! He's still having some feeding problems so please pray we would figure out a good solution to keep the work load of his eating time less for him (and us;-).

As always, I have a few new concerns-as you can tell, I'm not so convinced there's nothing wrong with him. I started noticing one of his eyes not looking at me when the other is. It's like when you are looking at someone and you don't know which eye to look at. This really bothers me and I don't know how I should persue. My doctor is either going to be able to buy something really nice with all our visits or ask me to change offices because I bug them so much. Owen is just so small to me. Even his hands and feet are small. So, it's probably not him, but me. So, maybe you should pray for me to receive peace about him. Don't get me wrong-he's 100% perfect to me, but I want to do the best thing for him and if there are treatable problems-fix them. Here's another cute picture:

Got milk?

I have an eye problem like that. (as I'm sure you've noticed) and... I turned out okay - I think. :-)
