3 year Check Up Today

Josh had his 3 year check up today and all is good, however, it was a little traumatic. For whatever reason he is terrified to have the doctor look inside his ears. Greg had to bear hug him as he was screaming to let the doc take a look. I felt horrible! Anyway here are his stats:

Weight: 36.5 75 - 90 percentile
Height: 38 7/8" 75%
BP: 92/48 (I have no idea what is normal for his age)
Vision: 20/40 (however I'm not sure how they came up with this number because he didn't want to cooperate after the first eye)

No shots today, thank God! Next appointment will be at age 4.

Sounds like great stats!

Deacon pulled that too last week. Although it wasn't his normal doctor. Usually we let the pedi look in my ears and show him it doesn't hurt but that didn't work. We had to resort to hold him down on the table, poor guy. But he was saying "it tickle, it tickle!"

I've never seen the pedi take blood pressure - I wonder what is normal?!

Zs is the 14th --totally NOT sure how that will go over, he has been with us the last few times we have taken Lyla to the vet so he is associating Dr with Shot and so everytime we tell him he is going to the doctor he says I don't wanna go to the doctor, I dont wanna shot. He will probably get his flu shot so I can't tell him no shots. Sad

Great stats! Poor Josh having to be held down. We've had to do that with Ava numerous times especially since she had the tubes put in and we have to go for check ups. She screams and cries. I think it affects me worse then her LOL

I've never known them to really take a LO's blood pressure. Hmm? I wonder if they will take Ava's?

Thanks goodness he doesn't have to go back for another year!

How are his legs doing?

Oh BTW is your Dad going to be at Bass Pro again this year? We got a flyer in the mail. I'd love to meet you guys there again... that way Josh and Ava could hang out again

How funny, they did not take Sophia's BP at her 3 year. She has had her BP taken at my OB's office, though, just for fun (after they took mine she insisted it was her turn). I don't remember what it was.

Sophia loves the doctor for some reason. Even though she knows she gets shots there, she has never been scared of anything. She loves the dentist, too. Strange, strange child Blum 3

I'm glad everything went well with Josh except those darn ears!

Funny thing is that he has NEVER been affraid of the doctor/appointments. Poor kid has had to go to so many different doctors in his short life that it is sort of second nature. However, about 3 weeks ago he was sick and they did a strep test on him and he FREAKED. That is what was in the back of his mind today so I'm sure that is why he freaked again today.

His legs are great! We go back for more xrays in May 2012 and if all is good then, we only go back once a year until he stops growing (I guess).

Mel - Dad will be at Bass Pro again this year. Can you believe he starts THIS weekend!?!? Crazy I know. I would love to meet you again this year. Maybe we can plan better this time and have lunch too!

He is 39 1/2 inches (90%) and 34 pounds (75%). He was a silent crier for his 2 shots (flu and Hep Dirol and then bawled his eyes out once the nurse left he room Smile

Yay! So glad all that is in the past now. Sorry he didn't like the ear checking.

We have to hold down Aasha for a variety of things sometimes. So, it doesn't faze me at this point. It's weird, she gets tense at the doctor's, but outside of there, she's really into all things "doctor". Weird kid.

Deacon had a similar reaction at the dentist. He loves going and was looking forward to it. He jumped up in the chair and did everything he was told. But as soon as he had to cough he freaked out and was done with it all. Its like they think one tiny bad experience is the end all to happy visits. Now I have to take him back to a pediatric dentist on the 14th to finish him up - they put the kids to sleep there. Lucky Kid! LOL

Um - so not fair that you two get to meet again. I want to meet your dad too!

How funny that none of your LO's have had their blood pressure done. My kids have it done every visit since birth.

In the hospital, we use to check blood pressures on all the babies before they were discharged. We did it on the arms and legs. If there was a discrepence of more thna 10 points (for example the arm was 65/37 and the leg was 90/60) it could indicate a heart issue.

Ava had a hard time with the shots at her 3 yr appt. She had to get Flu and a Prevnar booster. She was more upset watching Andrew get his flu shot, although he handled it like a champ!

She was a smidge under 38 in and 28 lbs. Tall and thin! Neither of which she got from me. Wink

Glad everything went well overall! That's interesting about the BP. Miles has his appt next week.

What wonderful news about Josh's legs!! I was reading over on the Oct 08 board that all their LOs were getting their BP taken at the 3 year appts too. I'm anxious to find out what kind of "tests" they run at Noah's appt--the office is so super laid back, I've never even filled out any questionaires or anything.

Ava hates the dr but I think that's because she had so many ear infections and then had to have her adnoids removed and tubes put in and with all the enemas the poor child has had to endure. I'm sure she associates all that with the word Doctor.

Jenn: Come visit us!!!! After the baby is born of course LOL Dawn's Dad is the best Santa ever!!!!! He looks the epitome of Santa Claus! And he was super sweet with Ava Douglas even though she was screaming and crying last year.

Dawn:
Yes that sounds like a great plan. I can't believe he starts this weekend... that's crazy but leaving Walmart yesterday Ava pointed out the Christmas tree decorated at the door :eek: I'd prefer to go visit your Dad in December if that's alright with you. Text me and we can make firm plans. I'm excited

It is crazy. Yeah I'd rather go after Thanksgiving. We'll make plans in a couple of weeks. Maybe Kelly can come join us.

Dawn thank goodness you mentioned me. As I was reading down the posts I was already getting excited about taking Matthew to Basspro and meeting you guys and if you didn't mention my name, how could I "horn" in and be polite. :bigarmhug: But you made it easy! Thank you! LOL I would love to meet up with both of you. Just let me know when. I'm easy like that. Biggrin
