Morning update (Saturday 12/13)

At this morning's 3:30 call, Carolyn asked all the questions I forgot to last night. Max's head circumference remained stable at 35 cm. He is tolerating his feeds well, despite the vitamin supplement. And, even though I swore off further poop journal entries, he had a full-sized load in his 8:30 PM diaper last night.

Given that he hasn't had another bout of GI freakout, even lacking Dr. P.'s journal articles, I think the prospect that Max has Hirschsprung's Disease has to be diminishing. Although perhaps Max has ultra-short Hirschsprung's? Which raises the question: Ultrashort Hirschsprung's: myth or reality?
