"Wednesday" Weigh-In

She hit 18 pounds! Wohoo!

Last week: 8.05 kg (17 pounds, 11 ounces), 28.5 inches (see what I mean about height measurements?)
This week: 8.15 kg (18 pounds even!), 29 inches
Week's change: +100 grams/5 ounces), +0.5 inches
Net change: +450 grams/16 ounces, +0.5 inches

And that means that she's gained a pound since the tube was place on July 8th, which was 6 weeks ago!

We've had some continued issues with granulation tissue forming around her tube site (click here for the wikipedia entry on granulation tissue) and had it treated for a second time in the surgery clinic today. I'm already seeing improvement, so I'm optimistic that today's silver nitrate treatment will nip it in the bud. It doesn't bother her too much, but it does look pretty gross, kind of like a canker sore forming around the button. Still, a minor complication for a huge pound of weight gain!
