Madison is growing well. She weighed in yesterday at 7lb 11oz. She's eating plenty and is allowed to eat on demand, which means I can try and nurse whenever she's seems hungry. (yay!) It's been a bit of a struggle to get her to latch the last couple of days, but she did nurse for 15-20 minutes this afternoon. (phew!) I was getting a bit stressed about that.
So, she had a few tests yesterday. Kidney ultrasound, and VCUG (voiding cystourethrogram). She showed some reflux on one side. She seems to be emptying the bladder just fine, but we haven't gotten a final report and recommendation from the urologist yet. She also had an ultrasound of the brain again today because her head circumference is up 1cm. A few more things to pray about.
I'm thankful she is so healthy, and doing very well. A bit scared and anxious about the findings today and yesterday. I did get some great pictures I will try and get posted here. Still working on that.
Seth and Ethan have been here the past few days, and they are loving her so much! She is really a beautiful and sweet little thing. She was awake and looking around quite a bit today as well. I can't wait to bring her home so I can be there for each moment.
Thank you all for your prayers!
