October 11th and a visit to the neurologist
We had an appointment with Dr. Stein, the neurologist, yesterday and she checked his reflexes. She scheduled an EEG for 10/22 and was happy with her findings and believes the seizures were cased by a temporary, benign condition of blood thickening due to dehydration in newborns called central venous thrombosis.
Later, we stopped at the pediatrician's office for a weigh-in. He gained 6 ounces over the weekend and now weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces. This is a good finding as he gained six ounces over the weekend.
On a sidenote, I took this photo on my iPhone using a program called Hipstamatic that recreated the effects, or lack of effects, of a Polaroid Instamatic photo. This is my favorite photo of little Tobin.
