I wrote a post last week about my knee and Kobe´s ears. Well Kobe went to the Drs on Friday to have his ears and lymph node checked and his ears were still very red and the Dr said that it can take up to a month for the lymph node to go away. Well then yesterday I took Kobe in for his 2 year Well Baby visit. My son is 30 lbs. 8 oz. and 38 inches tall. He was born at 9 lbs. 1 oz and 22 inches tall. The Dr put in a referral for him to see the ENT again and also put in aseparate referral for him to see a pediatric surgeon but that is a whole nother post that I am going to write soon. Other than his ears Kobe looks great and is growing right on track and his motor skill and speech all are very advanced :o)
Kobe is going to be getting some of his vaccines now, I delayed a lot of the vaccines. I have been given so much sh*t from the Drs and Nurses for delaying his shots but I am the Mamma and I will decide what I think is best for him. Tyrique and Markus didn't get their shots until after they turned two too. The Dr and I had a "very" long discussion about the benefit of shots yesterday and I have to say I do agree that children need their shots. I just don't think their bodies need to be bombarded with shots every few months for the first two years of their lives. Their bodies are too tiny to deal with it. Also the link between Autism and the MMR shot is just too scary for me. My step sisters son is autistic and that is too close to home for me, I am not putting my children at risk.
In regards to my knee, the Dr said that I have some fluid behind the knee cap still and he wants to do a MRI to make sure that I didn't do damage to the ligaments and also just to find out what in the world I hurt. My knee is still bothering me at night and on occasional days like today I wake up and my knee feels like I ran a few miles in my sleep. I just made the appointment with radiology and I have my MRI tonight at 8:30 pm and I will get the results in the next 5 days. Fun stuff, I hope it is nothing serious.
Since we are talking about Drs why not talk about Vets too :o) Tomorrow morning Maya (my beautiful Boxer puppy) is going in to get some shots. Poor thing is not going to like me very much. It is ok because we will go to some fun pet store afterwards and I will buy her something nice. Hey if the kids get to have something after shots why not get Maya something too???
Ok enough for today. Have a great Wednesday!!!
Here are a few pictures of Maya. Isn't she the cutest thing ever :o)
