We hadn't actually planned on getting her immunizations started today, with all the illness in our house right now. I figured with all the recent outbreaks of previously controlled diseases in our area, it has been a concern that she could contract something and get an out of control fever and have a febrile seizure. I have done enough research on the autism/immunization stuff lately to feel comfortable with moving forward with the vaccinations.
Ethan also had his well check today. He is doing great, other than the still lingering cold. He was so great about the doctor using the "flashlight" to look in his ears and down his throat. He also likes the "circle" the doctor uses to listen to his heart and lungs.
They are both the about the same in terms of length and weight. Both are in the 30th percentile for weight and the 50th percentile for height. I think most of Kaylee's 15.9lbs, is in her still chunky cheeks!
We are in the works for a referral to see a geneticist to test myself, Javi and Ethan for Tuberous Sclerosis. An interesting fact about our pediatrician, in his more than thirty years as a pediatrician, he has only seen one other family affected by Tuberous Sclerosis. Pretty crazy! That tells you just how rare this disorder is.
