A milestone.

I took Ralph to have some blood drawn today. He needs his electrolytes checked again now that he is fully recovered from the dehydration of a couple of weeks ago. His sodium levels were dangerously high at that time. Now we need to know if he should restart his sodium supplement.

I also wanted the doctor to see Ralph because his hands are peeling. Sheets of skin have been coming off for a few days now. Turns out that it may be an after effect of the dehydration or possibly another type of infection. Not terribly worrisome. At least his lungs are still clear as a bell!

Oh, the milestone...Ralph finally tips the scale at 20 lbs.!!! Ok, he had on a diaper...but I say it counts. I'm sure the people in the waiting room heard me yell YES!! when I saw the scale read 20.0 right on the nose.

His heart cath is in three short weeks. A lot is happening between now and then so I'm sure the time will fly. Richard will be leaving and returning from England. Chipper will be leaving and returning from camp. Baseball games gallore! James will be in and out of town. June 24 sounded like a long way off last it's just right around the corner.

God willing, no more delays.
