Savannah and Xander's Well Child Checkups
I took Savannah and Xander to the pediatricians this morning. The doctor was with us for almost an hour and a half. I felt bad. I think it went into his lunch break. He was so nice and made me feel like he rally cared. He copied and took all of the information that I gave him and their other doctor to look over. They are going to go over everything with me and explain "in English" what it all means. He answered all of my questions and went over the kids appointments. Savannah and Xander have opposite problems. Savannah has gained a little over 3 pounds 99% in two months, which is not good. We have to go to monthly weigh in checkups and I have to notify the endocrinologist. She's also gone down to the 35% for her height. Xander has gone from the 19% for weight to 10%. He's lost some weight. He has also gone from 3% for height to 1%. Their going to watch him and he told me to give him 6 ounces for every feeding.I'm so glad I switched their doctor. They are so much more on top of everything. I finally feel like I'm handing everything over to their doctor for them to tell me what I need to do.
