On Friday I took Lemon for his last Synagis shot, and when he was weighed it turned out that he'd actually lost about 4 ounces since his pediatrician's appointment 10 days prior. I am nearly certain this is due to the fact that for a week after the pediatrician visit, he wasn't feeling well from all the shots and didn't eat much. So, oddly, I'm much less upset about the fact that he lost weight than I was before when he merely failed to gain weight, when I was sure that CF was the culprit. This time, I have convinced myself that this little dip is due to "normal" stuff, so somehow it's much less scary. I have also seen Lemon bounce back from these little setbacks before, so I'm more confident in his ability to catch back up now that he's eating normally again.
Today is Papa Bear's birthday, so Lemon and I (OK, mostly I) baked him a cake and decorated it with a picture of one of the molecules that he's working with in the lab. For those of you who care about these things, red is oxygen, yellow is nitrogen and blue is chlorine. We brought the cake into work to share with our new coworkers who were duly impressed with the decoration.
