Dr. Sanchez says that it is possible that the hair follicles are just irritated. She did say that the bumps do resemble warts but since she has no other warts anywhere, that's not as likely. We are going to treat it for now with some medicated shampoo a couple of times per week and daily application of a topical ointment. If it goes away we can stop the treatment. If it is still there in two months they will do a biopsy :( If it changes more before then we will go back in. So, we are rejoicing for now that she doesn't think it is cancer or anything at this time!!
I hesitated to update on Connie yesterday because I was afraid I would jinx it. He went from Sunday afternoon until the early morning hours on Tuesday with NO THROWING UP! Of course he's thrown up four times today, but compared to last week today was even fabulous! I know it is because of everyone's prayers. Please keep them coming.
He got three shots today and had his checkup. Dr. Davis was pretty pleased. We like going there because everyone thinks he looks so big and so great. They aren't analyzing every ounce! He was 30 inches (90th percentile), 21 lbs. even (just over the 50th percentile) and 45.5 for head circumference (50th percentile). On his check out sheet he wrote for the diagnoses: Healthy, Heart Disease, GERD, Developmental Delay. It was hard to see the last diagnosis in writing. I know there is a reason for it and it won't be forever, but it was still kind of humbling.
Greg had a fabulous idea tonight. Lately Connie has been going to bed by seven at the latest but is waking up around 9 and wanting not going right back to sleep. To get him back to sleep on his own we've been putting the vibrator they gave us at the hospital in bed with him and it is enough to lull him to sleep. It goes through two batteries a night and sometimes doesn't even last the whole night. So, Greg got a chair massager that we had lying around the house and plugged it in and put it under the mattress. Now the whole bed vibrates and it's not eating batteries! Isn't he a genius?
Tomorrow he'll get weighed by the home health nurse so I'm anxious to see on the same scale we usually use how he compares.
