Annual Check-Ups

Wilson & Luke had their 8 and 6 year old check-ups this week. Both boys are very healthy. Dr. H said they must be very good eaters since their heights/weights and BMI's are excellent! That made me feel good. We try hard to make them eat right! Wilson was the only one who needed a shot (Hep A vaccine) and he handled it really well. We were so proud of him! But we gave him absolutely no heads up about it at all...the doctor actually wrote a note on a piece of paper and handed it to Andy to see if we wanted it done that day. So sneaky...ha!

I spoke with Dr. H by myself regarding everything I wrote in this post. Andy stayed in the room with the boys. Basically she just gave me the names of 2 psychiatrists and said it was time to see one of them and possibly think about medication. She said the level of anxiety is beyond "normal" and we have tried one thing after another to combat the anxiety. So have I called yet? No. Am I going to? Yes. It's just one of those things that is hard initially I guess. But I know it is time to take the next step.

Tyler also went because of sinus issues. He was running a low fever & had an ear infection. Since getting the amoxicillin it seems he is getting worse. Still running fevers & now a bad cough. Poor thing.

The boys were up insanely early this morning - good thing I went to bed at 9:30 last night. I was EXHAUSTED. Time to get ready for basketball!

Anytime, at any age, you have to make a big decision for your children, it is very hard. You and Andy have prayed, communicated between the two of you, with others and sought advice (which isn't easy to do) and now spoken with your pediatrician. Feel at peace with the decision you make.
