Jaxton is growing

The last time I posted, Jaxton was only 6 lbs. 15 oz at 6 weeks.  The next day we went to the doctor for his weekly weight check and he had gained 14 oz in one week!  It looks like he just needed a little more time to learn to use his new tongue.  Now at 9 weeks old he is 9 lbs. 3 oz. 

The poor guy has been congested on and off though.  So a couple of weeks ago he started a cough and it got really bad.  Twice I took him in and since his lungs were clear, they didn't want to do anything.  Finally, last Thursday she diagnosed him with Whooping cough and put him on a strong regimen of antibiotics that ends today and thankfully his cough is completely gone.

My Hezekiah had whooping cough as a newborn. Poor mama/baby. Bless you both. Glad to hear he is gaining.
