At Landon's two year doctor's appointment, our doctor suggested that we see a pediatric cardiologist to look at a murmur that she kept hearing. She really thought it was nothing, but just to be on the safe side, we scheduled one. Fast forward four months and we finally get in to see the doctor today! He said his heart looks and sounds great, but that he has pneumonia! Not a bad case, but needs to be addressed today before it really gets worse. He asked me if he had been sick or coughing a lot and I said, "Yes!" All through the holidays he had a cold and now it has turned into this.
So, I drove back to Ruston (about an hour away) to see if we could get into our pediatrician. Mom was watching Kennedy so we went by to pick them up and headed to the doctor's office. She looked him over and said that his tubes (that we put in back in August) are coming out and that he has an ear infection. Grrrr! Those are supposed to last at least a year. I guess this explains some super crankiness we have been experiencing with him!
Since we had Kennedy there, I asked our doc to look at her. She had caught Landon's cold over a week ago and her sleeping patterns were off. Soooo, it turns out that she has not only one but two ear infections. Yikes! Poor thing!
And just think, these were all discoveries that were made during a routine check-up! ;) Yep, that's me, Mom of the year! At least Landon was WONDERFUL with everyone poking around on him all day. He was a little ham and the doctors loved him!
