Miss Nellie had her two-year checkup on Monday this week. Dr. King looked her up and over and declared that everything looks and seems healthy. She’s still got the heart murmur we learned about last year but said she’s not really concerned since we saw a specialist in Fargo and he said it’d go away. Dylan had the same type when he was younger and it no longer exists, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed. AND lucky for us she was up-to-date on all her shots (including the flu) so we had a shot free visit…but we still had to get a finger prick to test her blood lead level.
We’ve set up an appointment at Mayo Clinic to checkout the swelling of her hemangioma. It hasn’t changed much, if at all, since we first went in again in October, but figure it might be enough to be impeding on the upper part of her vision. Better safe than sorry, right? I’m sure I’ll write more on that later, so we’ll leave it be for now, just if you think about it, please send up a prayer for us next week.
The hospital used to give out these cute little “See how I’m growing” stickers with the child’s info written on them, this time around I got a print out, along with other “helpful” tips on her developmental stage. Not quite as cute for her journal. She is growing though, albeit slowly. My peanut is 2’9″ (30%) and 25 lb 9.6 oz (37%), she’s still wearing some 12-24 mo. shirts but now has pretty much upgraded to 2T. Which reminds me that I’ve got to go through her closet and put away all the clothes that are too small.
This Friday is her official birthday. She’ll be TWO. Has it really been TWO years? She’s still my “baby,” but she’s becoming more and more vocal about how much of a “baby” she sees herself as. Which, of course, kicks off baby fever for this mama, but rest assured that these ovaries are
for now under control.
