And our lucky number is...

Well that was what Henry's platelet count was as of yesterday...what an improvement from 6 weeks ago!! The normal platelet count is 150,000 to 400,000 platelets per microliter (mcL) of blood or 150-400 as we call it in the healthcare profession!! It's not a big deal to exceed the max number, but at the end of December Henry was at a critical low of 13!

Other numbers:

My little peanut weighed 7.14 kg or 15.7 lbs (with his clothes on, so we'll call it 15 even) and he was 65.3 cm or 25.7 in (give or take a little for all his wiggling!). He's still falling around the 15-20% for his age, however we have his official 6 month appointment the 24th so we'll have more exact numbers to report!!

Another great number to report: Henry's bedtime has changed from 7pm to 6:30pm (it is said to make the bedtime earlier if the baby goes from sleeping through the night to waking up again) and he slept until a little after 5am today, fed and then went back to bed until 7:30am...NICE!!! He may have slept a little longer, but I wanted to feed him before I left for work this morning.

On that work note...I'm making this a short post just because I had to get up at 4am this morning to shower, get ready, feed Henry and leave for work by 5:25am...I'm exhausted!!

G'night all!
