Oliver and I drove to the Herma Heart Center for a check up on Monday. Everything looked good.
At 14 months from his due date, 15 months from his delivery date:
His oxygen saturation was 97%
He weighed 20#6oz (5%)
He measured 31.5 inches long (75%)
His noggin was 18 3/4" (75%)
Like his father, he's a long, lean fighting machine...with a really large head. "an orange on a popsicle stick." Of course, the long, lean body type is associated with kids who have had heart problems, as well.
His development ranged from 13 months (fine motor skills) to 17 months (language skills). So, he's right on track there as well.
Oliver seemed to enjoy the "games" OT, PT and speech played to assess him. Even more, he enjoyed running around the hospital...especially, when he found the yellow poles.
