9 Month Appointment

Parker had his 9 month appointment today (at almost 10 months!).
He had a couple of shots, and had to get his toe pricked so they can check to make sure that he is getting enough iron.

Stats from today:
22 lbs 12 oz (90th percentile)
30 1/2 inches long (95th percentile)

Parker is amazingly healthy, and we are so blessed with our little "miracle baby" as Dr. Bravo calls him :) Although, we did have to talk about his surgery. Parker still has undescended testicles (they are there, just not all the way down). So he has to have an ultrasound tomorrow to see where they are. Then we will get referred to a Urologist, and then talk about/schedule his surgery. Dr. Bravo says that it is a pretty simple surgery, and he should get to go home with us the same day. He definitely will need this done by his 1st birthday, so it will be within the next couple of months. I know it is a routine surgery, but we still worry. He is our little angel baby, and we just want everything to be okay and have him home with us.

Good news though... we *think* his hernia might be gone, so that's one less thing he will have to have surgery on! We will most likely know for sure in a few days, but it's one less thing to worry about.

Please keep Parker and our family in your prayers. :)

I will keep Parker in my thoughts...although I have a feeling that the surgery will be harder on Mommy and Daddy than it will be on him :)
