Brinkley had his two year well check up yesterday. Thankfully, there were no shots involved, only a finger prick. We will be headed back soon to get flu shots though.
It was no surprise that he is in the 0.13% for weight (yes, that is less than the first percentile), weighing in at 19 lbs and 0.5 ounces. He is small, but mighty and (dare I say it) HEALTHY!!!
When the nurse asked what changes had been made since our last visit I had to question when our last visit was. We had not seen the pediatrician since May. That's right May! No sick visits since May and that visit was a hospital follow up. She also asked about hospital stays since our visit and there were NONE! The g-tube closure fell in that period, but it was an outpatient procedure so it didn't count.
Yes we have had many other doctor visits in that time frame, but all of them were routine visits. There was one potential sick visit to Pulmonolgy in June, but he was simply having seasonal allergies so he wasn't technically sick.
Wow! God is good and our little guy is making progress everyday!
