10 Pound Party and Cardiology Appointment

Today we had another appointment with our cardiologist Dr. Levy. He is very pleased with how his heart sounds and how he looks. From what he said, everything on the cardiac catherization looked good. He is also very pleased with his saturation levels which usually run between the high 70's and low 80's. If his saturation levels drop in the low 70's and below then we should start to worry. But they are not and he is doing really great. If things continue as they are going then the next surgery (Glenn Procedure) will be at the end of April.

We also were super excited to see Travis' weight today. He is now weighing in at a whopping 10 pounds. We worried last week that he was not eating very good after the catherization, but the last few days he is consistently finishing his bottles. It definitely shows on the scale and we were so excited that the entire doctor's office heard our joy. We spent tonight having our TEN pound party with Travis by celebrating with a pound cake of course. The ideal weight for Travis to get to by April is 16 pounds. He has 3 months to gain 6 pounds, so we very hopeful.


Travis finally hit the 10 pound mark today -1/20/2009
He left the hospital after 52 nights at 8 lbs 1 oz - 12/14/2009
He was born weighing in at 6 lbs 2 oz - 10/23/2009.
10 pounds is a great milestone for Travis. Nicole and I were so happy.

Back to sleep after a tough day of eating, sleeping, doctor's visit, and tummy time. Unfortunately 10 times out of 10, tummy time ends with a nap.


  1. Amazing! Truly such a blessing and I can't wait to hold and love on him someday soon!!! He's just too cute for words.

  2. I am so totally jealous! Hope is so close, but still not there. CONGRATULATIONS on hitting the BIG 10 Travis! Way to go...and I am so happy there is still no talk of the Glenn. Enjoy your party and I am still keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
