No news is good news!

Wow, where have I been? I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to do a follow-up from last week's blog! Almost instantly after posting I had good news on the phone! Our nurologist called and said that Lynlee's head ultra sound came back the same! Which was wonderful news. We didn't want a change and now no follow-up is needed! Finally some great news.

Then on Friday we had a phone call from our nutrionist. Lynlee's amino acid results came back and her body was a little low on the stored protein. Too much protein is bad, but so is too little. It's an extremely fine line and I'm so thankful for them to be there for us! So they made complete formula changes and wanted another ammonia checked on Tuesday just to make sure it wasn't going higher than 55. We took Lynlee yesterday and it was a 47!

Lynlee had an extremely busy weekend. We celebrated her first Memorial Day. We went to Valley Head for the day on Saturday. She got to experience her first pancake breakfast and her first parade. Her pappy was very proud of her and showed her off most of the day! We actually made it home around 9:30pm and she was wore out.

Sunday we spent the day with Ryan's parents and family. Lynlee got to try her baby pool out for the first time. I have to say I was way more excited about than she was (this happens alot in our house) and she lasted about 5 minutes and was ready to get out.

Then today was a big milestone for us! I took Lynlee for her weekly weight. Our result?! 20lbs 20oz. Oh how I've waited for this day. The day to finally turn the car seat around. YAY Lynlee, but you can stop growing now!


  1. Was it her isoleucine? Corrigan's came back bottomed-out too! Means he is growing and used up what he had. We did a slight increase too and now have to go back sooner than expected to make sure the adjustments are good. I am always excited when we catch a growth spurt though! We want to optimize each one that we can to a chieve maximum body and brain growth! (but it is always nerve-wracking (to me!) to increase dietary protein. ugh)

    Lynlee looks so cute in her pool! We got one at Walmart, it has a sprinkler and a slide and it was regular 35.00 and we got it for 9.00. Cant wait until it warms back up enough to use it!

  2. Yes Mindy it was her isoleucine. I know it's a good thing that she's growing but I'm still nervous about the increase! I know I shouldn't be they take good care of Lynlee, and know a lot more about it than me but still!! LOL..

    I just wish Lynlee liked her pool.. hmmm.. I'm hoping she grows into it. Oh I can't wait to see pictures of Corrigan in his slide :)
