Maybe Daddy's got the day off...

This past Wednesday we took our newest little one to get his hearing checked. (The same hearing test that is done on all newborn infants) Our doctor wanted him to have this baseline test done for his records. He was such a little trooper during the entire thing.

During the test it was discovered that he had an ear infection in one ear and fluid in the other ear. So the next day we were off to the regular doctor to get his ears checked and the medicine he needed to get better. The good news is that at the doctor's office they weighed him and he's now gained two pounds...a whole two pounds (almost three). He is now weighing in at 16 pounds. YEAH!!

Now, I know that this doesn't seem like much, but to a child that has been malnourished and is in desperate need of gaining weight (any weight) we are ecstatic. We go back in a couple of weeks for his next round of immunizations, blood work and tests...oh boy, that should be a really fun visit...
