An Update about my little blessing!
« on: June 10, 2007, 02:21:04 PM »
My little Nathan is around 8lbs 15oz, two weeks after going home, that's about 3 weeks after delivery (his birthweight is only 5lbs 15oz). He is starting to get really heavy and he is going to have his first shot of 5 important vaccines this coming tuesday. He is feeding around 4 to 6 oz which worries me because he might end up being obese at barely two months. As of now he is really taking almost all of my time since I am a single mom and I didn't hire a nanny because I wanted to be a first-hand-mom to him. So far I am greatful that he is doing well as of the meantime in spite of having a thalassemic mom.  :biggrin

As for me, my hemoglobin is at 11.5 grams at around two weeks post transfusion which is a good sign.  I will have my check-up this coming monday for my blood before we go home to the province (country) and have our long due rest and relaxation, since there is less polution and a more healthy environment there.  That means if my hb is still good by monday I might have a long vacation.  :wink

Here are some pictures of my little Nathan that may inspire everyone of us who are thalassemics.  He is my living proof that miracles do happen.

Here is my Nathan at 3 weeks old (Just click the link that follows: http://alnahrahmea.multiply.com/photos/album/4)

Its great to hear he is doing so well & so are you.Its great to hear so many thal women from all around the world are having kids-its an inspiration to all,that we can have a illness(which is hard for us in itself) plus we have the determenation to look after another person.may i ask lei did u have to go through fertility to concieve little nathan? its ok if you dont want to answer as i know its  a personal question.Once again congratulations!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and cheers.  Nathan is 10.4lbs as of this week monday. He is growing up really fast, which is a good sign. :biggrin

My hb is only 9.0 but the good newsis that my hematologist allowed my baby and me to have a vacation.  Actually she encouraged us because the weather and atmosphere in the province may be better for me and baby Nathan. :biggrin :grin :cheer

By the way sydneygirl yes there is a fertility work-up that I did have to undergo to ensure the baby will be concieved with utmost care , but it did not assure that he will notinherit my thal.

Anyway, i'll keep intouch with evryone as soon as I find a net connection there or as soon as i get back.  God bless to all and may we all find strength and better health always.
