We went this morning for Morgan Kate's follow-up visit. Both ears were clear and looked great. And Dr. G said her lungs sounded perfect. Whewh! Just what this momma wanted and needed to hear. Dr. G does want us to continue with one inhaled steroid which MK gets through her nebulizer twice a day. We are going to keep MK on this particular breathing treatment until we go back at the end of the month for her one year well visit. Even after people get over a respiratory illness it still takes weeks for the lungs to heal completely. With MK it takes even longer because of her prematurity and immature lungs. This treatment will continue to help things improve. Oh, and MK weighed in at fifteen pounds and thirteen ounces. Exciting! She is just growing, growing, growing!
Speaking of growing. When Morgan Kate grows up she can't decide whether she wants to be a neonatologist or a NICU nurse. Either way, she's practicing now.
And by the way, I did not set this picture up. She was sitting on her changing table playing with the stethoscope. (I use it to distract her while I am changing her diaper and putting on her PJ's.) While playing with it she proceeded to wrap it around her neck. See, she already knows what to do with it.
