2 Month Stats

Owen had his 2 month appointment today. It went well. Here are his stats:

Weight: 13.9 lbs (90%)
Height: 25.1 in (97%)
Head circumference: 15.4 in (25%)

When Owen was in the hospital with the UTI we were given an order to have a particular test, called a VCUG, done. We took him to the hospital this week for the test. Basically, they insert a catheter and dye so they can watch where urine goes in his little body. What they found out is that he has grade 3 reflux, meaning the urine does not always go to the bladder and empty completely, it travels up towards the kidneys, which is probably why he got the UTI in the first place. For now he will be on an antibiotic daily to prevent any more UTIs. The doctor is optimistic that he will grow out of it in the next year or so, which about 70% with this problem do. We will retake the VCUG in a year to see if there's been improvement. Pray that it heals up and there will be no need to take any further action!

I would add a picture but because of his shots he's a fussy boy today and I don't think I'd get a good picture out of him!

I'll be praying too!

Feel free to post fussy pics! :) I think you should take photos when he's crying or not having a good day too. I bet years from now you'll be glad to have photos of all his little moods.
