Today we had Elli's 2 year and Connor's 6 month well visits. Both kids did great considering their appointments were at 7:10 and 7:30 in the morning (I did not schedule these times....our dr. had to cancel our original appointments and these were the only times they had left- go figure).
Elli did great while the dr. checked her out and repeated 'nice' over and over again during the whole process. (We've been telling her that the dr. was really nice which is why she kept saying this). Elli is 24lbs 2 oz (10th-25th percentile) and 33 1/2 inches (25th to 50th percentile). She received one shot today and did great with it. She cried for a second and then quickly recovered....she was happy with the fact that she got a band aid. Overall, the dr. is pleased with her development and she doesn't go back for another 6 months.
Connor did well, but was pretty tired during his appointment. He is 14lbs 13 oz. (10th-25th percentile) and 25 3/4 inches (25th- 50th percentile). Like Elli, this little guy is small for his age. He received 5 vaccinations, 4 shots and 1 oral. These are always so rough on him. For the rest of our day, he was fussy, slept, and needed lots of cuddle time. Overall, they were pleased with his developmental, but were concerned with the fact that he has been sweating more. They had us call our cardiologist since we aren't scheduled to meet with them until the middle of April. Luckily, they were quick at returning our call and didn't think they needed to see us earlier than April. They gave us various things to look for in the meantime (symptoms for heart failure...geesh- never once has heart failure been mentioned because of the VSD until now). Anyways, he's been fine since and we haven't seen any of the symptoms- except of course sweating!
This was Connor much of the rest of the day....
