I had my first appointment with my Pediatrician today. I have been working out so much that I have lost weight. So even though I'm drinking my full bottle, the Doctor thinks it's best that I only drink 1/2 of it by myself & take the rest through the yucky feeding tube. They need to fatten me up a little more I guess. I also had some blood work done - I thought I was done with all the poking & prodding, but I guess not.

When I was at the doctors office - the nurse told mommy to carry me naked back to the room (after being weighed). Mommy said that was probably not a good idea, but the nurse didn't listen. Sure enough I sprayed the hallway & even pooped a little just to prove mom's point! It was unfortunate for Mommy - since she was the one carrying me :0)

I have an appointment with the Cardiologist on Thursday - he will decide if I have to keep the feeding tube or not.

I miss my daddy.....


  1. Hey MAx to bad you did not spray and poop on the nurse ! She would have deserved it. Nana Nancy

  2. Trust me son, I miss you too. The world is a ruff, and expensive place. Some day when you are older, you will know exactly what I mean. But for now, as long as your mommy, and I can help it, we will shelter you from it. It was not too many years ago that men would not even get time off to see the birth of there children. I guess they did not think men cared. Well, I care. I would like to be able to stay at home and help raise you. But, I would also like to provide you with the things I did not have. So I travel, chasing work, making ends meet. Just remember, it is all nothing with out you, and your Mommy. Hold on to her tight, and kiss her good night when I can't. Love you Son...

    Your Proud Daddy.....

  3. John....I've only met you once I think, but I can tell from your messages on this blog that you are a very compassionate man and I think that's AWESOME!! You are going to be a GREAT father!! :-)

  4. Awww! I never understood why they had you carry the child back from being weighed naked. Jeffrey peed all over, but he didn't poop. Too bad it wasn't on the nurse. LOL it is a cute story though. You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. We love all three of you very much.
    Love you and yours,
    Mike, Millie, Jeffrey and Shelby

  5. Oh my gosh ! Reading Johns post at work wasn't good. It brought me to tears. It is so wonderful to see a Daddy so in love with their child. Max is a very lucky little guy to have so many who love him so. Will keep praying for you all , and soon Max will be off the feeding tube and before you know it he will be into everything. Cherish these days.
