Meladee was happy

Ana came back to see Meladee.  For those who don't know who Ana is, she is Meladee's "teacher" for her Early Headstart program she is in.  She hadn't seen Ana in about a month and half but when she showed up today she was a very happy little girl.  She showed off for Ana today as well, rolling over, standing, chattering to her and playing with her.  Ana comes once a week, next week she will be back and then after that we will start going to group every other week.  And then in two weeks Liz will be back, she is from The Little Red Schoolhouse and they help with PT/OT and other things as well.  We will see how Meladee likes that.  Just getting her back on track with her "friends" that come to see her and play with her.

Guess What?!

I entered Meladee into the Gap Casting Call.  If she wins for her age group she would get a $1000 Gap gift card and a professional photo shoot, the 2nd prize is a $500 gift card and a professional photo shoot and 3rd prize is a $500 Gap gift card.  Voting doesn't start until towards the end of May.  I will updated when it starts.

Today's appointment

Meladee is now 14 1/2 pounds, so she is 2 oz over her pre surgery weight.  She had an echo done today again as well and no changes with that.  Her medications have been cut back once again.  She only has to take the diuretic once a day and her heart medication three times a day, which mean I no longer have to stay up until midnight and also no longer have to wake her up during the night either.  We go back to see Dr. Likes in a month.

Meladee's new pictures

Here are some new pictures of Meladee.
She goes and sees her Cardiologist on Thursday and we will get an update on that day to see how she is doing and how much more weight she has gained.

Update from last Post Op Appointment

As of Monday Meladee is 14lbs 4ozs, so that means she is only 2ozs short of her pre-surgery weight. 

Also, there is no longer any fluid around her heart or her lungs and we got to go from three doses of Lasiks a day to two.  There is a chance that we may be able to decrease her dose of heart medication next week after her appointment on the 10th.

She is also able to get a regular bath now, no more of this quick baths for her and she gets to play now in the tub.

Meladee is doing so good.  I will post some pictures later.
