I am so excited!
Honestly it’s almost better than the unsupported sitting.
Daphne has FINALLY reached 20 pounds!
20 pounds 4 ounces to be exact
This is a huge feat with her disease and with all the sickness she has gone through recently.
She lost over a pound just a month ago which set her back to 18lbs.
Keep praying, sending good vibes or whatever you believe in because it is working.
As my mom says “Daphne is writing her own book!”
The other big part of this weight gain is I told the pediatrician we would start vaccinating again once she hit 20 lbs.
When we received her MRI results and diagnosis we stopped vaccinating do to the unknowns of how the mitochondria handles vaccines, especially the MMR (eek, just saying it freaks me out!)
I have always given both of my kids one shot at a time with plenty of time in between and this restart will be no different but things are going so well I hate to risk it.
I just love our pediatrician, I scheduled her shot appointment for next week with another doc b/c our normal doc was booked for the rest of the month and we are going to Disney at the end of this month and wanted to get the shot in her before visiting that cesspool of everything and I just received a call that our normal doc has made time for us since she knows Daphne best and would like to be the one doing the shot appointment. Good Doctors ROCK!
Wish us Luck!
