Too long!

Again, it's been forever since I've posted. Jack's finally on the winning end of an illness that began on New Year's Eve! He got a high fever that night that persisted for about 5 days. When we went to the doctor he just had a runny nose and a little cough so the doc wasn't concerned and chalked it up to a virus. Well, Jack had his 9 month check-up about 10 days later and was still sick when we went in. Dr. Raine was a bit more concerned about his little cold which had now turned into bronchiolitis - severe chest congestion with wheezing and a cough - NOT FUN. Turns out the little virus that caused it was RSV - which can be pretty dangerous. Fortunately, we were able to put Jack on some liquid albuterol and get the congestion cleared up in about a week and a half. He's doing much better now and is finally getting some good sleep - something we were missing for several weeks!

At Jack's 9 month appointment he weighed in at 20 lbs, 10 oz and was 29 inches long! He's grown so much. It's hard to believe he's more than doubled his birth weight and has grown over 8 inches since April. Dr. Raine was pleased with how he's doing (other than his illness) and gave us a good report.
