Xander's doctor's appointment
Xander has been screaming when he has a bowl movement. Over the last week it has gotten so much worse. He's not constipated or anything. I emailed my doctor on Saturday and he told me to have him come in to have him looked at. I took him in, with Savannah. She was good at first and sat down in a chair, but then wanted a snack. I had yogurt covered raisins and soy crisps for bribing her to be good when we go somewhere. I had to fill out some information because we just switched their pediatrician. Of course Savannah wanted one of the flower pens that they had. Then Xander woke up and started crying, so I got him out of his car seat, then Savannah had to have another pen. Next, Xander wouldn't take his pacifier anymore and was screaming, so I had to stand up, still trying to fill out the paper work. Savannah decided she wanted to put the flower pens back on the counter, including mine, which I had to help her and when I thought she wasn't looking grabbed mine back so I can finish the info. Savannah, who is getting smarter by the day, of course turned back to check to make sure that I didn't take one, and saw the pen. She tried to take it form me and then through herself on the floor and had a tantrum. After I calmed her down I went back to my seat to find that when one of us had gotten up we had knocked over the bowel of Savannah's snacks onto the floor and some people were trying to help me by picking them up. I felt so bad. I tried to pick them up with Xander in my other hand. A nurse came out to tell us it was our turn. Savannah was sitting on the mini trash can by then, looking out the window. They weighed Xander 12.5LBS. I think he throws up at least half of what he eats. He's only gained a pound in one and a half months. While we were waiting for the doctor Savannah played with the stirrups on the bed, loudly. I bet they love it when I bring my kids in! LOL Xander started crying as the doctor came in. I started to try to make him a bottle. I dropped the top onto the floor. Xander screamed louder. The doctor picked it up and washed it for me. He looked at Xander. Then, left the room to talk to his doctor. I had to change Xander's diaper because it was very full. Xander spat up all over the table and himself .Savannah had two more meltdowns in the room because she wanted out. She also thought she would be fun to be mad at me and throw all of her flash cards all over the room.We have to take Xander to the hospital to have his stomach X-Ray to hopefully find out what's wrong tonight. I'm so worried. I also have to give Xander suppositories, which I really don't want to do! Yuck! Savannah of course didn't want to leave the doctors office, and had a little tantrum and I had to pick her up with one arm, which had my huge diaper bag/ peruse and Carrie Xander and his car seat in the other. What a fun day at the doctors!
