2 Week Doctors Appointment
Friday we had Brooke's 2 week appointment at Carithers. We saw Dr Kim Del Porto, who I know from doing Apples of Gold at church, which is nice. We arrived early, but they went ahead and put us in a room. The nurse came in and weighed and measured her, and Brooke rewarded the nurse's effort by pooping on the scale. lol. She weighed 8 lbs and 5 oz and has grown a full inch, making her 21.5 inches long! Her head's circumference was 34 cm.
We got to put her diaper back on but had to leave her without clothes until Kim came in, so Daddy kept her wrapped up tight in her blanket so she wouldn't get cold!
He also entertained her by giving her Eskimo kisses!
When Kim came in she checked Brooke's eyes, ears, coloring and lungs and said that everything looked great! :) Yay! She also checked Brooke's hips and said that she could still feel a it popping a little bit, so we're going to have to get an ultrasound done on her hips. That's going to be done next Monday at 1:30, and it will take a few days to get the results, but we should know if she needs treatment for hip displacement by the end of next week. If she does, they'll just give us a brace to put on over her diapers and she'll wear that for about a month and it would be fixed!
Other than that everything's great! We will have to go back at 2 months and she'll get her first round of shots! I'm going to make sure to make that appointment well in advance so that Brooke's Daddy can get off early and hold her during those shots! (While Mommy and Brooke cry) lol.
