Stats Update

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

"I'm recovered and back to working on my head control!"

"Ok, now I'm tired."

Caro had an appointment with the Gastroenterologist (GI) doctor today, and she is now.....

12lbs. 11.5 oz. and 26 inches!

These numbers are especially good considering she was very sick/in the hospital for some of the month.

Funny dialogue with the GI today (note - PG language ahead) -

Doctor: (Walks into the room, sits down, looks back and forth between Caroline and her chart) Wow, she really looks great, doesn't she?
Me: Yes
Doctor: Really, I think she looks very good - getting chubby, nice pink color. REALLY, she has improved a lot.
Me: Yes, yes I agree - it's great to see.
Doctor: I mean, when she first came in, she was skin and bones, no cheeks, I could see her ribs...(widened his eyes)...scared the hell out of me!



  1. Oh, good I've been waiting for an update and some pictures. Caroline is such a cutie and I especially love your captions, Erika. = ) Caroline does look good!

  2. I was happy to see the update and the photos. Caroline really looks better and so cute.

  3. am I the only one who wants to punch this dr.??? who says that?!?! you have great self-control.
    so glad shes home!!!

  4. I think it is funny the doctor said that, especially since she was doing better when he did. It is nice to know that they edit thier opinions don't want to be worried anymore than you have to be. It is also comforting to have them be real with you at times too...let down thier guard a bit and really relate.

  5. I swear some of these doctors say the most bizarre things?? What a weirdo..why would you say that?
