A little brotherly competition

Daxton has kept us busy the last year, going to this place and that. We've seen doctors for his brain, his eyes, his ears, nose, and throat, his teeth, his glands, his genes, his lungs, his heart, his boy bits, his tummy... And, the whole package. There may be more... They do all begin to run together after a while.

I honestly thought we'd met just about every specialist in Nashville at some point or another... I was just about right.

Enter a little brotherly competition.

Ty now gets to go see the blood doctor. Hmmm, never been there before.

He's been bruising really easily, like from his diaper and onesie collar. I didn't really worry about it at 1st, since, in my experience, if a baby has lungs, a heart, and most of his brain, then he's fine. Then I showed two of my nurse friends, and they freaked me out. Got in to see the ped and she is "concerned." They ruled out leukemia, and the CBC otherwise looked good, but she is "concerned" enough to want us to see the hematologist.

Really? Are you friggin kidding me?

At any rate, I've talked to some people who are way smarter than me (not that that's a very exclusive club), and the general consensus is it's probably nothing, but now I get to worry until the hematolgist tells me it's nothing.

Yay. Parenting is fun.

When do we get to start worrying about things like skinned knees and peanut allergies?

Regular babies have wierd issues too...I rushed Alyssa to the doc when she was just a few weeks old because she had recurring red circles all over her back and tops of her shoulders.Obviously,leprosy or worse, right? Doc took a peek and said "snapalugy" to which I said "is that bad?" with great concern. He said "nope get her some clothes without snaps." Turns out he said snap allergy (allergic to nickel) So I will be praying for Ty and hoping that maybe Dax has been using a Garrotte around Ty's neck. Hang in there and keep us posted.

You know what happened...Ty got tired of hearing how he was going to be the easy, drive-thru baby. ;)

Thanks guys. I know it's going to end up being nothing major, but still... Can't wait to have it on paper. The doctor's appt is on Tuesday, so we don't have to wait too long. And, Shawn, HILARIOUS. I'll ask the doc if it's snapalugy... Or maybe brotheritis :)

Hope everything is okay. I'm sure this is super stressful. Hang in there.

Meanwhile you obviously have enough amunition to never be put in a home when your hit those elderly years! "I never put you in a home when the doctors diagnosed you with snapalugy!" Keep us in the loop Mollie. :) Prayers.

Ugh! I can totally see why that would stress you out. Praying that it's nothing.

I take offense to the fact that you said I freaked you out. I simply suggested that you might want to have it looked at....As a mother myself, you know I would never intentionally freak another mother out. Give my boys kisses.
