Two Steps in the right direction!

Both Dr. appointments today were good.

Jocelynn is healthy and right (or above) the learning curve! The Dr. was a little concerned with her weight, as I am, and have decided as a household to all eat healthier after the new year.

She is 43 1/4 inches tall(97%) and 58 pounds (also in the top percentile). She has always been in the top percentile, but her weight curve is headed further upward than her height curve. I don't want her to have to go through what I went through as a heavy child, so we will be getting that under control.

I'm also trying not to make too big a deal out of it because I don't want her to become self-conscious.

John's appointment when very well! Apparently the previous urologist didn't know what she was talking about. The Urologist we saw today (who specializes in Male Fertility) said that a varicose does effect sperm count and testosterone levels. So surgery is a go, now we just have to schedule it, he will be down for about 3 weeks and it will take 3-6 months to see any significant results. The Dr. also started him on an oral med to help his body to stop take the testosterone and converting it into Estrogen, which she believe is what is going on since he is overweight.

All in all we like this Dr. very much and we are very happy that we have been able to take two steps ahead and we feel like progress is going to be made soon! Looks like 2010 will be a great year!
