9 month check up

Just wanted to update everyone. Wednesday Marie had her 9 month check up. The weight we got at Children's must have been off because she weighed in at 16lbs 6 ounces. This is a releif, she's not as far behind as we thought. She's 27.25" long, so about 40% for height, 10% for weight.

She got the pneumovax vaccine which will guard agaist a type of bacteria found to cause ear infections. We also got everything together to begin giving her the RSV shots. This will protect against upper respiratory viruses, and while it's wildly expensive we feel that it's comepletely worth it. She'll get the first on Monday (I think).

Other than that we're just hanging out. My brother Mickey is here for the weekend, and Josie's X-mas program is Sunday. Much love- I hope that you are all feeling some of the positive feelings that I am today. Shan

Hi Shannon! Just want you to know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. It must be such a difficult thing to have your precious baby girl afflicted with this disease. We have not met "little miss" Marie yet, but her pictures show us how adorable she is! Our prayer is that our ever faithful Lord would just hold Marie in the palm of His hand and may He wrap you all in His arms and give you all strength. In His Love, Nola and Percy
