Baby and mom update

Lets start with the PKU...Everything went well. Kyndall was up to 4 lbs 15 oz at her appt. on Thursday. The jaundice was only left in her face, and the nurse said that the face is the first place for it to show up and the last place for it to leave.

Friday was my surgery to remove my stint and blast the kidney stones. It well extremely well. Before the surgery, the doctor said that they don't normally do lithotripsy on both kidneys on the same day. They can only shock it so many times before it becomes dangerous to the organ. However, my right kidney responded really well, it didn't take the maximum shocks and the stones turned to dust. Therefore, they were able to do the left kidney as well, and it responded the same way as the right. I go back on Feb. 10th for my follow up.

Today was Kyndall's 2 week well appt, and it went well, too. she is now up to 5 lbs 6 oz and 17 1/2 inches. Her doctor said to keep doing what we're doing and she'll be fine. He also said that her jaundice is all gone. He wants to see her back in a couple of weeks just to do a weight check because she is still on the smaller side, but things are going well!
