Our precious blessing
Monday we had Adams 3 week follow up with Dr. Skarda.
I was hoping Adam would be upwards of 12 lbs or more. He was eating well but he had lost so much from the surgery. He weighed in at 11 1/2 lbs. Dr Skarda was pleased with his weight and explained with that major of surgery it would take 3-4 weeks to get back on track. I still wasn't happy but content that things were progressing.
Dr Skarda said his incisions looked wonderful and lungs sounded great but wanted to check the fluid to make sure it wasn't building.
As long as the chest X-ray looked good then we wouldn't need to come back and see him.
On the way home he called letting us know the X-ray looked great. The fluid pocket had actually receded and he was extremely happy with everything. What a blessing. There has been so many the past 6 months I can't count them.
Thank you Dr Skarda for taking Adam into your heart, loving him and wanting what was best for him. It was such a mercy that you happened to always be the Dr in when we needed help.
Forever, thank you.
