Emily had her 18 month check up today.
She is almost 21 lbs now! Her head, height and weight are all small, on the charts though and proportionate.
We were very frustrated this time because we had to wait 1 1/2 hours for a scheduled well baby check up. She is not getting vaccines right now so all the doctor needed to do is check most orifices-all were clear. I don't think she even looked at Joe or myself once. She never once asked how Emily was doing or if she was doing anything new since her 12 month check up. She never asked if Joe and I were doing ok or if we needed anything.
She was rude and angry that her nurse was not there to write her prescriptions and notes.
The reason we have stayed as long as we have is because of the awesome nurse case manager. Thankfully we don't see the pediatrician often.
It just makes me so sad to see a doctor who is doing their job because she has to do it, not because she loves to do it. You know a doctor who does it because he loves to do it when you see one.
Emily has had much better head control lately. She still has far to come but her PT thinks we may have her setting up within the next 6 months! I can't wait to see my baby setting!!!
She has two teeth on the bottom and one on top is getting ready to break through.
We know that teething is a seizure trigger for her and because we keep a daily journal on all of her seizure activity we can see trends.
