Developments & Desenvolvimentos



Hoje levamos o Antonio para visitar o Dr. Blake, que foi um dos neonatologistas dele no hopsital, e que mantém uma clínica especializada no "desenvolvimento" dos bebês prematuros.

Foi uma visita boa, e está tudo bem com nosso pequeno guerreiro -- que estava medindo 52 cm e pesando 5.726 gramas. Para resumir, o Dr. Blake falou, que se não fosse por ter reconhecido a Sandra e eu, ele nunca acharia que o Antonio era prematuro! Claro que nós ficamos muito corujas...

Depois disso demos uma passadinha rápida na UTIN pra ver as nomorados do Antonio, e ficamos contentes de rever a Cathy, Cindy, July, Lynn e o "verdadeiro" Dr. Mike -- que ficou super contente de rever o Antonio também.



Today we took Antonio to Dr. Blake's Developmental Clinic at St. Joseph's.. Dr. Blake was one of the Neonatologists that took$ care of Antonio. All went very well, Antonio is 12 lbs 10 oz and 22 1/2 inches long today), and to summarize the vist Dr. Blake said that if he had not recognized Sandra and me, he would never had guessed that Antonio had been born prematurely! That made my day...

After that, we stopped by the NICU to see Antonio's girlfriends, and it was nice to see Cathy, Cindy, Lynn and Julie (no Bridget!) and of course Dr. Mike that was very happy to see his little buddy doing so well.

Antonio,
You are so missed here at St. Joseph's NICU. I can't believe how much you have grown! We all miss you so much, but we are so happy to see you doing so well.

Please say hi to your Mommy and Daddy too and thank them for sending us our own special video of you to watch.

Pretty soon you will be a movie star and going out to Hollywood!

Hugs and kisses,
and love,

Nurse~Melissa
