He's a growing boy!
Last week, when the home health nurse dropped in, he was 9 lbs 10 oz. Today he was 10 lbs 9 oz. Not bad, eh? The nurse also took some blood today because they're still trying to solve the sodium mystery. She ran the specimen over to the lab at Children's and they ran the BMP ASAP (Basic Metabolic Panel). When waiting for lab results, I figure no news is good news. But his doctor called back with the results just after dinner. Good news--the sodium is still normal. Not so good news--the calcium and bicarb are well outside the normal ranges. And Aaron didn't have time to explain the implications of that before he had to rush off to Scouts tonight. The doc wants to take more blood tomorrow to rerun the BMP. We'll already be in for a Neuro visit, so why not throw in a blood draw, too?
