From Beth: Today has been more difficult than normal.  We went to her pediatrician appointment early this morning and Sarah Beth got her 4 month vaccinations.  When she got her 2 month vaccinations, she was still in the hospital so I wasn't actually there when they gave her those shots.  This time I was there.  She did really well though.  She cried when the nurse gave her the shots but as soon as I could pick her up she stopped.  However, her legs obviously hurt because she has been very sensitive all day.  Generally fussy and touchy, she is reminding me of how she was when she was first in the hospital. 

The doctor was pleased with her growth.  She is still well below the "average" curve, but she started out well below it.  But, she is following the curve well even if she is under it.  The doctor said everything really looked great and we should just continue like we are.  We will see him again in October for her 6th month vaccinations.  We will start RSV shots in September or October which will be one shot a month for about 8 months or so.  That plus being cautious around people should really help her from catching RSV during this winter.  RSV isn't normally a big problem for most babies, but for preemies, especially preemies with lung problems, it could be deadly. 

I've started working again.  I'm glad to be back because I missed my students and my work.  It is hard.  It makes me more tired.  But I'd sure rather be there than not.  We had a great discussion at youth the other night and I was reminded why I love my job so much.

Thank you all again for your continued prayers.  We still need them!
