Put through the ringer and still bearing a smile

Poor baby D! He has been put the ringer the past several days. We saw Dr. Martin yesterday for his 6 month well-baby exam and he received 3 vaccinations in addition to the oral rotovirus vaccine then we were off to the lab where they drew 3 vials of blood as well as "bagged" his boy parts to catch a urine specimen which meant removing tape at a later hour to empty the urine into a specimen jar. He was such a good patient! The x-ray results from Wednesday came back normal. He weighed in at 16 lbs 10 oz which is the 40 percentile and was 26 1/4 inches which is the 50 percentile for height. Now it is a waiting game to receive the results of the blood work. We hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I will be anxious to hear the results. what a relief to know that the x-rays were okay. are being so very strong. I don't know how you do it.but you are one tough momma.
Hang in there just a little while longer and I'm sure this will all be behind you...
hope to see you guys this week

yah, can you believe they were giving pb snacks at church?!? and not to mention, caedmon wears the HUGE yellow sticker that says peanut allergy on it?! i was soooo frustrated. i mean, i realize people make mistakes...but you can't make mistakes like that. what if it was a kid with a more serious allergy. and to top things off, they had nothing there (like benedryl) to help in a situation like this. yah, not sure what to do...i'm pretty irritated with the whole situation.
that's scary about, you all have an epi-pen for her, right?
