As of wed. May 21st, Teagan is 2 months old! Trent and I are amazed and truly feel blessed that Teagan is doing so well just a short time after her heart surgery. Its really amazing how far she has come!
Her dr.'s appointment on wed. went pretty well. All of the tests they've done to determine what the blood in her stools is caused by have come back normal. So for now, we're assuming its an allergy to something in her previous formulas or my breastmilk. I'm still off all dairy and also soy products and any nuts (peanut butter, etc...) So my diet isn't very exciting, but if it helps Teagan then I can handle it! Teagan is also finally gaining weight! On wed. she weighed 8lbs 5 oz!!! Which means that in the last 2 weeks she gained almost a whole pound! The dr. felt she was healthy enough to have a few immunizations so she received 2 of the 4 shots due at 2 months. She has been really sore and fussy the last 2 days but as of today (friday) is doing much better! Her immunization schedule is a little tricky because she's not allowed to have any 'live' vaccinations for 4 months because of the blood transfusion she received during her surgery. Also, she's not allowed to have any shots 1 month prior to her next surgery so we have to try and fit as many in as we can between now and then!
We still haven't received any word yet on the results of her holter monitor study from last wed. Someone from children's hospital is supposed to call us after they've reviewed her rhythms. If she's doing well enough, they'll start to wein her propranolol!
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. Trent and I could not have gotten through the last 2 months without it! Thank you also for all of your comments on here- its so encouraging and we love reading them!
