Tyler had an allergist visit yesterday so I figured I'd kill 2 birds with 1 stone and do a quick weight check at the GI's office since it's less than a mile from the allergist office. (The allergist doesn't have an infant scale and the plop-him-on-the-scale-with-clothes-and-a-diaper weight skews any progress.) The scale read 19 lbs 12.4 ounces, a +7.4 oz gain in one week. Wahoo! To say the ng tube is working is an understatement. Usually Tyler would take a month or two to gain that much weight.
Dr. Shimamoto was pleased with the gain and would like to try apples or pears next week. He is hoping to have Tyler on a couple foods before we do another scope. Originally we had an appointment to see McOmber in July but I got a call from McOmber's office this morning saying they could get us in June 7th. I can't wait to see what the scale says in a week and a half.
