Alice's Restaurant

Lennon was one hungry caterpillar over the last couple of days,  Lennon has gone up from 2lbs 7oz to 2lbs 10oz!!  She also went from 14.5 inches at birth to 16 inches :-)  Little peanut is getting bigger every day!!

The FNP called this evening and gave us some good news.  Lennon is still requiring oxygen, so the doctor ordered a echocardiogram.  It was more to rule out the idea that there was a heart condition causing the need for oxygen.  The FNP said there was nothing abnormal found!!  Whew!  There is a valve that is not closing completely, but that is normal for many full term babies and it typically self corrects.  Van actually had this when he was born, but it closed on its own by the time he was 2 weeks old.  

The doctor did order a round of lasix.  This is a water pill and will help get rid of any fluid that may be in Lennon's lungs.  This could be the cause of Lennon needing some oxygen, but they aren't 100% sure.  Hopefully, it will help so we can get her off the oxygen completely!


  1. She's getting so big! I can't wait until she gets to come home!

  2. I know, me neither!! I am hoping sooner rather than later!
