Dr Appointment Updates

First, I had Maxwell's well visit this morning. He's growing very healthily and doesn't have any issues...well that the doctor is concerned about anyway. He weighs 20.5 lbs and is 29 inches long. He's average for weight and a bit short, like his momma. He got one shot and the dr. ordered blood tests for lead and iron levels. He got one shot...which only makes us about 8 behind now!

We came home and picked up Matt & Payton and went to the drs to have his mole removed. Since we were there early, we decided to have Max's blood work done there. So I stayed with Max and Matt took P to his doctor's appointment. He got the easy kid...again.

Maxwell SCREAMED when they took his blood and didn't calm down until they finally let go of him. Then the nurse realized the order was for two vials, not one. So they had to do it again in the other arm. By now the kid's had one shot and two blood draws and is NOT happy. He couldn't even be appeased with juice.

In the mean time, Matt and Payton were having his mole removed. It all went really well. It was about the size of a dime and Matt said it came off really easily. Payton didn't even cry or anything and just played tic-tac-toe with his daddy. The doctor said it didn't look like anything to be worried about. We go back in two weeks just to have the site looked at. Other than that, we won't hear anything unless the biopsy comes back with something to be concerned about.

So now everyone is home, recovering from the emotional and physical pain of the day. Maxwell and I are going to take a nap and I think Matt and Payton are going to play the Wii.

I'm glad it's all over and we're all "ok". Thanks for all the love and prayers!

I knew Payton would be a champ. Did you go to CEC??? BTW, I have pics of your oldest in my child's dress up stuff (feather boa reference)
