At 6 months Grady weighed 16pds 9oz and is 26 inches long. He grew 2 inches in two months. He had his shots and didn’t cry again along with getting his blood taken from his little arm and also didn’t fuss. Such a good baby!
He is within the 75-90% on the DS Charts in case you were checking.
He had his Thyroid tested and for the most part things came back pretty good, one level came back on the upper side of normal, so we will be on a re-check on that in three months.
Grady has developed quite the post nasal drip congestion, which sounds horrid on any given time of the day.It makes me rather frustrated with the “its just his down syndrome” response. Children with down syndrome tend to have an increased amount of congestion and combined with their low muscle tone’s inability to move it out of the airways it can build up and then leading to coughing it out. I am bringing him back to the Dr’s tonight to get him checked out again, because along with his increased congestions he has been pretty sweaty during the day and night. Something isn’t sitting right with me with the whole situation.
I will keep you update, please keep our little guy in your prayers and if it’s just the “Down Syndrome” causing all this hacking, then pray for peace of mind for me because my heart hates to heart it!
