Emma's Check Up With The Surgeon =)

Back home from our two week check up and baby is playing in her crib... she loves goin' out!

All is well.... the visit was really unremarkable... keep her on the same routine as normal.... heart and lungs sound great... fontanel is a bit smaller than the last visit... she's gaining just fine and developing normally.

Next check up will be the beginning of her vaccination series and we'll likely be able to start her on some pureed puppy food via a larger tube. (right now she's on a 5 french... for the puppy food, she'll have to be able to tolerate an 8 french tube.)

I'm to give her first dose of pyrantel in the morning to deworm her, just in case anything was transferred in utero.

Doc says I can start with puppy vitamin drops any time I feel that Emma is lacking in nutritional aspects. I have already starting giving her the tiniest bit of Missing Link supplement in her yogurt a week or so ago, which Doc says is fine. Emma is tolerating it well and her loose stools have greatly improved since taking the ML, so I doubt she'll have the need to take any other supplement at this point.

She's doing very well and I am pleased with her progress thus far.

The only new "talk" this time, was of the possibility that Emma will have to have "doggie braces" as a young adult.... but that's pretty far in the future so I'm told not to worry about that now....

I spoke to the Dr's about setting up an account for folks who would like to assist with Emma's medical bills - - - so I will be posting that information as soon as I have it.

Have a blessed week all!!! ::nose kisses from baby girl::
