botox baby

lauren did really well yesterday getting her latest round of botox injections. she had 4 doctors, 2 nurses, and a technician waiting on her throughout the procedure so she did just fine - she loves her audience :)

hope to see the effects of the injections w/in a few weeks and that would mean her spasms slow down and her hips and legs can relax again.

she saw her ENT last week (snuck her in on a cancelation) and the dr. said she has a viral infection but should NOT need to have anything removed. yeah! she finishes her antibiotics tomorrow and i hope she'll be done w/the congestion and stuff soon.

and the big news is that she weighs 19 lbs!!! Woo hoo! so just over 2 months w/the feeding tube and she's gained nearly 2 lbs. We're very excited :)

have a wonderful thanksgiving everyone!

the latest w/lauren

hi friends & family... thx for checking in w/the blog :)

lauren has been referred to her ENT to check out why her tonsils and adenoids are red and swollen. she's had a head cold for nearly a month now and still isn't sleeping or breathing so well. she started antibiotic yesterday and an antihistamine to help her so hopefully she'll see some relief soon.

her spasms are getting worse overnight again but we're tweeking her meds so hopefully within the next few days her legs will feel better.

her g-tube site is (i think) getting better- still some granulation but she started a steriod last week to get rid of it- should see results w/in 2 weeks if it works.

as always, she's keeping us busy! hope this update finds you & yours well.
