10/15/08 - Weight gain here we come

As I believe i mentioned previously, we had some lab work done on Makenna to make sure there was nothing else wrong with her, other than having her dad's metabolism. All the initial tests came back looking good, but yesterday they got the results back from the urine culture they took and found a bacteria. This is not a big deal at all, she just has a UTI (urinary tract infection) which according to one of the doctor's Cristi works with is very common in failure to thrive babies (which makenna was "diagnosed" as since she does have a high metabolism). It is pretty much a sure thing that once we get this bacteria taken care of we'll be able to see weight gain again. This should keep Dr. Choate happy, as well as take some stress off Cristi. As for me, as long as Makenna is happy, dad's happy.

Good deal! I know that is a relief to you and Cristi. We need to get Nash and Makenna together again!
