Great to be "Average"

Evan is feeling much better these days and sleeping through the night again. He had his 2 year old well-child visit with Dr. Oldham yesterday. Believe it or not, this is the first scheduled well-child visit he has had where he has actually been "well."

He received a Hep B immunization and he was weighed and measured. I don't recall the exact weight (it's around 27 1/2 lbs still), but he is 33 inches tall. This puts him right at the 50th percentile for both weight and height. I never thought being just plain, old average would feel so good!

Progress with the glasses is slow but on-going. We adjusted the glasses and put on some different cable temples so that they fit better (One of the temples had to be cut about 1 cm shorter than the other to fit around his ears properly--I would have never guessed he was that asymmetric!). So now they stay on unless Evan pulls them off.

Please continue to keep our friends Reuben, Caleb, and Marsha in your thoughts and prayers.

I know the feeling when you go to an appointment and its kind of odd, that you have no problems or sickness to talk about, its also very rare in CHARGE but equally very rewarding...enjoy Evan he is looking great, healthy and strong.

Love Lesley & Amélie xx
