I’m freaking out.
AJ’s Cardio appointment is in a week. Those 6 months have gone way to fast. WAY TO FAST.
She has gained about 6lbs in the last 6 months. Turns out, there are a million different Infant Growth Charts out there. They range from placing her in the 90th percentile to the negative percentile. So I did a little research and according to the CDC’s website the ‘official’ chart is the WHO Child Growth Standards. Her weight at her last appointment 6 months ago placed her a little bit below the 50th percentile. Her current weight places her firmly between the 50th and 85th percentile.
To say that I am happy about that is an understatement. However, being the fretful mother that I am I can’t help but wonder if it will be enough. He obviously is using a different kind of chart, since he said she was around the 4th percentile at her last appointment. What if her growth isn’t enough according to his charts? What if he still recommends that she have open heart surgery?
Please, pray that it will be enough and that we can put off another cardiology appointment for another year. Please.
