Well, we didn't get "cut" from seeing the GI but that's not to say it was a bad appointment. Ellie weighed in at about 20 lbs and 8 ozs, 32 inches tall. This put her right up against the growth curve, but not on it. Her height was perfect and he noticed she was getting a belly, which he loved to see on her. Still, he asked us to stay on the Periactin 3xs a day, and still push all the pediasure and food we could get into her. That said, he was confident in 3 months she would be on the growth curve. At that point he would step back and have a follow up to make sure that if/when he did cut her loose, the pediatrician wouldn't freak about not having GI support and we could show that Ellie can grow w/o his support. He said he couldn't have asked for more from her and was very, very happy with her.
