Third time is the charm

After we tried...and tried...we finally made it to Iowa City today for Blake's January check-up. Despite the cold and wind, the trip was just fine. On today's agenda was labs, a bone xray and dialysis.

The labs looked great! We've had days where his numbers are all out of whack, but today wasn't one of those days. In fact, Dr. Jetton actually decreased one of his meds, which I assure you, never happens.

The bone xray was short, but Blakers wasn't having it. He absolutely knows that when he is put on his back at the hospital, it's not a good thing. Blake screamed the entire xray, but the two gals that did it were awesome and we were done in five minutes.

After that we headed to dialysis where we meet with the nurses, the doctors, dietician, social worker and whoever else pops in to see the babies. They were all extra excited today because they got to see Bowen for the first time in three months. :)

The dialysis visit was pretty uneventful, which is a great sign. The dietician is adjusting his formula recipe to get him some more calories, but that was it.

Today I am thankful for cooperative weather and good doctors appointments!
