Tanner 6 month appointment

Tanner had his 6-month appointment August 25th...he is growing quite well as his stats will show :)

He weighed 20 pounds 12 ounces (94%) (Teeghun was 21 pounds 10 ounces), he is 28 3/4 inches long (above 95%)(Teeghun was 27 inches), his head is 18 inches around (94%) (Teeghun's head was 17 3/4 inches around)....

We are still to do the Xopenex breathing treatments twice a day indefinitely. We will continue to monitor his chest rattles and see if they get any better or worse. We can discontinue the Pulmicort since it seems to not make much difference.

His ears still haven't cleared up so we are seeing Dr. Reddy (the Dr. who did Teeghun's tubes in his ears) on October 2nd to be evaluated for tubes in Tanner's ears.

We talked about his clogged tear duct and we are still just in the wait & see time frame on that. He said that most kids outgrow a clogged tear duct by the time that they are 9-12 months so we will how it is looking at his next appointment.
