Sammy's First Smile

Yesterday afternoon Sammy made his first social smile to me. It was very exciting. He only did it once and I could not get him to do it again. This morning he was very interactive and awake so I thought I would try it again. I got a couple of smiles out of him so I figured I would try and get one on camera.

I either got the beginning or ending of a smile but I thought I would share a few of the pictures.

There are a few other pictures of Sammy on the web album from weeks 4 and 5. Here is a link.

Gallbladder Update

We meet with the surgeon on Friday that is going to remove my gallbladder. The doctor wants to wait until my c-section infection is completely healed up. He is going to be on vacation for 2 weeks so I go see him again on June 13th. Hopefully by then the c-section will be healed up and we can schedule my surgery.

Until then I am eating very little to no fat so that I do not have another gallbladder attack.

Gallbladder Surgery

Well after several trips to the Emergency Room, doctors office, and hospital for various tests the doctors have determined that Lindsay needs to have her gallbladder removed. We meet with the surgeon on Friday (25th) to discuss the procedure and to schedule a time.

We will update the blog on Friday with more details about when and all of that stuff.

Update on Sammy

I had a follow-up appointment at the pediatrician yesterday to get the results of the culture taken from Sammy. They found that it was not an infection he was just having a reaction to my hormones and it was just milk in his breasts. They said this will go away in a few months.

When we were there they weighed Sammy and he weighed in at 9lbs even. He gained 4 ounces in 2 days! He must be getting ready for a growth spurt.

Sammy's First Two Weeks

Well Sammy is almost 3 weeks old (on Wednesday) he is growing like a weed. I took him to the pediatrician today and he is weighing in at 8 lbs 12 oz. He has gained 7 oz. in the 7 days so he is right on schedule.

Sammy has a small infection that he has to take antibiotics for the next 10 days. We follow up with the pediatrician on Wednesday to see how the infection is doing.

We have uploaded a few pictures from the past 2 weeks, mother's day weekend, and Lanicia's soccer game.
