The Green light

We’ve been busy!!

On Thursday, Mr. B and I traveled down to Pleasanton to get him checked out by our CF team. He was weighed, 29 1/2 lbs and measured, 38 1/2 inches!! His weight has held steady around 29-30 lbs but he has had a growth spurt up. At the rate he’s growing, our doctors estimated he’ll be about 5’10” when he’s done growing. Not sure where his height comes from but we welcome it!

We went over our usual questions then the doctor came in and did a thorough examine of his tummy. She pressed on it, making sure there were no sensitive areas or hardened areas that could be possible blockages. Everything felt normal and his lungs were clear! So we were given the green light to up his enzymes. Ben now takes six Creon 6’s with meals. Phew, that’s a lot of enzymes to fit on a spoon of applesauce! The best news is that I’ve already seen an improvement in his BM’s. They appear to be back to normal, hooray!!

After our visit, Ben and I continued down to Carmel where my parents live. On Friday we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium with our good friends, Lindsay and Abby.

We had such a great time and the weather was gorgeous. Thank you to my mom who took many great pictures. It was nice to actually be in some!

On Saturday, Ben and I traveled back to Roaring Camp Railroad (where we saw Thomas) in Felton. My dad’s work was having their company picnic there so Ben and I decided to horn in.

  1. Way to go Ben! Wow, I wish Nathan would eat enough to take 6 enzymes with his meals. =)


I love hearing from you, thank you!
