I'm so sorry that it has been a month since I have updated her website. I promise I have pictures that will be up very soon. As you can imagine I've been very busy at home and work. Avery is doing wonderful. She weighs in at 11.8 pounds. Our sweet angel was sick again this past week. She was running a fever, coughing and sneezing. She is doing better now, thanks to God.
We did evacuate in time from Hurricane Rita. Luckily we left at the right time on Wednesday so it only took 5 hours to get to San Antonio. We couldn't take any chances with the electricity going out since she is on dialysis.
We are still having issues with her constipation. She was taking lactulose which is a stool softner but that didn't seem to work so we have to give her a suppositorie every other day. It's awful, I feel so bad for her. Raul took her to UTMB today. They said she looks great and is growing well. We have not seen Dr. Kalia in a while. Everytime Avery is scheduled for her check ups, Dr. Azam has been there. Dr. Azam is very sweet and so easy to talk to. We couldn't ask for better doctors and nurses. Please keep Dr. Kalia, Dr. Azam, Jeanene and the rest of the dialysis team in your prayers. They take care of Avery so well.
Her nightly dialysis is also going well. She is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room and boy is she outgrowing it. But I can't let go, I can't see her going to the other side of the house and being so far away. She is such a sweet and joyful baby who is full of excitement and laughter. She has discovered her hands and plays with her toys hanging on her carseat. I'll update pictures soon.
