5 months

Brielle was 5 months on November 1st. Cant believe it!! We had her 5 month check up today. Josh and I had a bet on what she weighed and her length and Josh was right on them both (Dont tell him I used the "R" word with his name) She weighs 9lbs 10oz and is 20" long!! So on the growth chart she is in the 50% for weight, 5% for length (so she is a shorty) and 25% for head circ. All and all he is VERY pleased with her!! He heard of this clinic in Green Bay for babys on oxygen and would like to find out more and send us there if he thinks we would benefit from it. He wants to give us a better explanation as to When we will pull the plug on the oxygen other than the answer "When she is ready" that he gives us all the time. He was originally wanting us to talk to a pulmonologist in Milwaukee but he said we should try Green Bay first since Milwaukee is a drive and an all day affair. So we said we would try it out!!

Brielle was given the OK to stop using the apnea/brady monitor on Thursday!!! So we glady returned that machine! No more smoke detector alarm to spring us out of bed! She hasnt had an episode in a month!! Glad she got off the caffeine and is doing well enough to get off one monitor!! Oxygen and pulse ox monitor will be next!!

Nothing else new to report other than the call of motherly duty is crying out and not digging her swing anymore! Ta ta for now!


  1. All around good news!!! Great too hear :D

  2. Five months!! Hardly seems possible. She certainly has had quite a journey to get to this point. She's amazing. Takes right after her parents! Love the GREAT news!

  4. Josh and Amber I can't believe Bri is 5 months now!! Unreal. She sure has been through a LOT in her 5 months, poor thing. Sounds like she is doing good Glad to hear she's off one monitor more to come... I know it's a lot of work and stress but you guys are strong and for some reason God gave you this task to under take. You three will have a very special close bond forever, that will be all worth it. Prayers are always being said. Take good care. Good job, Brielle!! Love Debbie
