1 month old

Benjamin is 1 month old! We had a good pediatrician appointment this morning. He weighs 10lbs now! I'm so thankful that he is eating well and getting some meat on his bones now :)

We also had a follow up appointment with the pediatric neurologist this afternoon. After her exam, she said that she thought Benjamin look really good. In order to take him off of the anti-seizure medicine she wants to do a 4 hour EEG to see if they detect any seizures. The last EEG he had in the NICU did pick up some "sub-clinical" seizures. If they don't record any during this EEG then he will probably be able to come off the medicine. This will happen in the next few weeks. We are praying that there are no more seizures detected and he is able to be taken off the medicine. But we are thankful that there is medicine to help when it is necessary.

We made it through the pediatrician appointment all together! Thankful for a friend letting us borrow their fancy double stroller!
