Friday, we went to see Dr. Granger for the last time in a very long time. Next time we see him Ian will be 6 years old. He made the final adjustments to the NAM, adding a piece between the nose stints to create an indention at the base of the nose.

We also went to do pre-op at the Day Surgery Center on Friday. Ian had another physical to make sure he's ready for the big day. He weighed 16.3 pounds, but this was with all clothes and a full belly, and he is 26 inches long. He's grown over an inch and a half in less than a month! Since Ian's pediatrician did hear a heart murmur at the 4-month healthy visit, the nurse decided it was best to do an echo cardiogram of his heart. He was such a good boy, laughing and playing with the echo tech the whole time! Luckily, the results were normal. However, there is a part where two arteries did not completely connect, but this is supposedly very common and nothing to worry about. The nurse said since he's still so young, there is a possibility that it may fix itself.
Now we just sit and wait until Tuesday...
