Update from Daylon's Surgery & Well Child Appointment

Daylon had his surgery on the 19th for new tubes. It went extremely well!! No blood sugar issues, and came out of anesthesia smiling. Such a wonderful sight!! I did ask Dr. B about the breathing/snoring Daylon has been doing at night, and he said that adenoids can grow back and that may be the problem, so we will keep an eye on that.

On the 20th Daylon had his 3 year old well child visit. He was 26 pounds 2 ounces and 34.5 inches long!! He has made it onto the charts! His weight is right on the 3rd percentile, height is just below the 3rd percentile, and his head circumference is in the 10th percentile at 47cm. He looked in his ears and commented that they usually have blood clots around where the tubes are placed, especially the day after surgery, and he did not see any. He said that Dr. B did an amazing job!!

At our well child appointment, we found out that Daylon's murmur that was heard in March has changed. He commented that innocent murmurs are high pitched and the murmur he heard on the 20th was not at all what he was expecting to hear based on his notes from his last visit. He said that innocent murmurs don't change and he wants us to take Daylon to a cardiologist.

We will see Cardiology tomorrow morning. Hoping and praying for answers!!

Thank you all for your support.
