Clinic visit

Woo Hoo! Clinic went great this morning. Seamus has gained a pound and grown an inch! So now he's at 41st percntile for height and 66th for weight which is an overall BMI of 78. Can't ask for better than that. His lungs sound good and hopefully his culture will come back clean since he's been on Omniceff for the last week because he was having increased cough.

We talked a little about his GI problems these last couple of weeks but the CF doctors really don't have much to say about that. Seamus' GI issues are so extreme that they haven't dealt with anyone like him so they leave it up to the GI folks. But today he seems to be pain free and is pooping so we're not complaining.

A funny story:
Seamus is a big fan of classic rock music. Often while riding in the car, he asks me to stop the radio on a station that plays lots of AC/DC, Cars, Eagles, etc and we usually rock out to a few songs. This morning we sang along with Paul McCartney and Wings. A while later, Seamus told me his favoite song was "Bad Dollar Rug". It took me awhile but then I realized that's a much better title than "Band on the Run."

Pretty sure I have the coolest nephew with the best music taste.

I love lyrical misunderstandings!! They are always a vest improvement on the original.

Can't wait to see the LHP pictures!

I meant to say "vast improvement". Obviously, I'm the mother of a CF'er!
