New room, New doctor

Apparently, the first half of December has been a really good time to have babies. There are so many babies, that they pulled 6 out of the special care nursery last night and moved them upstairs to the overflow nursery. Amelia was one of them.

She's doing well. She has finally started eating more again, after a long week of not eating much at all. I'm going to meet with the occupational therapist in about half an hour to see maybe what we need to do to get her to eat. A week or two maybe till she's eating enough on her own?

Kari said Amelia doesn't need her anymore. She told me that with a sad look on her face, and said she has grown quite attached. Who wouldn't? :) So tomorrow, Amelia will be transferred into the care of one Dr. Freestone, a normal pediatrician. I have no idea how good he is, but Kari highly recommends him. So that's a plus.

My sister said she would take Felix on Thursday and Friday, so I'm going to try to get some housework done. It feels kind of odd to be excited about that, but I am honestly looking forward to it. Wish me luck!

I don't know if you remember me but I was in your single ward. Dr. Freestone is the best. He is a great doctor and a great person. He was the bishop of our ward when we built our house. He has only been home for about nine months from serving as mission president in South America somewhere. He is one the doctors I go to when I have to go after hours. You and little Amelia is in good hands.

Take care,
Heather(Prestwich) Hunter

Yes Dr. Freestone is great. I had him when I was little. But I love my peds dr. Dr Later. He is great too. I am so happy that you get to soon have her home with you asap. Maybe for Christmas????

Thanks for the recommendation Heather (and Karla). I love personal recommendations for things like that. Of course I remember you! Good to see you around. :)

That is comforting to hear good reviews about your kid's doctor isn't it? Sounds like good progress. I understand how you feel about the housework. It seems so tedious until you can't do it for some reason. Then it becomes the forbidden fruit and you want to do it. I hope Amelia can be home for Christmas!
