Hello friends!
Leslie here. This past Monday we took Penelope in to see her neurologist Dr. Puri for a follow up appointment. Overall, her progress is great and Dr. Puri was pleased with her development. We did another (short) EEG procedure, and he decided to slowly wean her off one of the two seizure medications she is taking over the next 30 days. Hooray!
He cannot make any statement about the condition of her brain without another MRI, so we have one scheduled for this coming Friday afternoon. I don't know exactly what he'll be looking for, but fingers crossed that the report is good and that the damage hasn't gotten worse. We also have an appointment with her geneticist next week, and an ophthalmologist before the end of the month.
In the meantime, Penny is learning to smile! She's been focusing on our faces and smiling more and more this week - we can't get enough!

Penny has continued to do well since coming home. She is gaining weight appropriately and she is breastfeeding well. She loves going outside and play with baby paper.
She has a cow's milk intolerance so Leslie has had to adjust her diet to avoid anything that has milk products. Penny has developed baby acne (it doesn't bother her) which should go away on its own with time.
We will be meeting the geneticist in a couple of weeks. She continues to take seizure medication, but has not had new seizures since day 2 of life.
Pumped for halloween!
