We went to Ryan's pediatrician, Dr. Wood, this morning and Ryan weighed 6 lbs. 3.5 oz.!!!

Dr. Wood was very happy with Ryan's weight, color, overall health, etc. He did say that since Ryan was breech when he was born, he wanted a hip ultrasound done. This is commonly done in babies in breech condition at birth. This was the only issue that came up. He thought Ryan's leg and arm rotation looked good. He also said he didn't think Ryan would need to be on oxygen for long. Overall it was a great visit!

Getting to the doctor, however, was much more challenging than the visit itself. It's very difficult to carry Ryan, his monitor, oxygen tank, diaper bag, etc. It takes a long time to get him unhooked to things at home, get him ready for travel, get him in the car and unload him from the car just to get to the appointment. Whew, was I tired when we got home. I'm so lucky Alec was with me. He was a very big help!

Besides the hip ultrasound appointment, Ryan has a trip to the OB, eye doctor, physical therapist and pediatrician (again) in the next week. We will be going on lots of medical appointments in the coming weeks and months. We will try to keep you updated on everything.

I have to say that Joey, Alec and I are so blessed and happy to have Ryan in our lives. We are also blessed that Ryan is doing so well. Ryan could have many more issues to be dealing with than he is now. We look forward to Ryan growing and thriving as the newest Fontenot.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for Ryan and sent good thoughts his way. We know that we could not have made it this far without them.
