Happy 11 months baby girl! We are celebrating another milestone while princess recovers from her cold/infection. She has been doing well since coming home from the ER on Thursday, though the antibiotics have been giving her tummy troubles. As a result, our skinny mini is down more than 1 1/2 pounds in the past couple of weeks. That is a major crash diet for a wee one. Thankfully, none of the cultures of her blood have turned up any sign of a bacterial infection so the paediatrician has told us we can stop the antibiotics. Hopefully, Addison’s tummy will be back to normal in a couple of days so her appetite returns. We are still dealing with a bit of congestion and snottiness but definitely on the mend. Unfortunately, Aaron has caught the bug too!
I really can’t believe we are approaching Addison’s first birthday. I find myself getting quite emotional when I think about it. I just did not know if we would get this far. We aren’t going to have a big birthday bash – we will be blowing out a birthday candle in Florence on April 12 – but we are planning a huge celebration in May for the 1 year anniversary of her heart transplant.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
