sorry been gone for a couple days. having a little scare with hayden...though he is doing better. I posted it at the forum...but here is a history if you missed it.
We went to Hayden't 3 yr check up. I told her I thought maybe he had allergies or something since he has been sniffly and not himself and his face and eyes have been really puffy.
she checked him out and said...hmmmm yeah his skin is very pale and waxy...and look at those dark circles. did you see his neck. I said...well...it is a little swollen too...she said no...there is a hugeeeee swollen lymph node. Sure enough...it is the size of two smallish walnuts end to end. How did I not seeeee that. I am kissing on that kid all day.
Long story short....they put him on antibiotics (they say that 90% of the time it is just an infection). They gave him a tb test since it has been 2 yrs and if you are exposed you can get swollen nodes. They then gave him his vaccine...which made him pee his pants and cry...poor guy. Then they made us go downstairs and they wrapped him like a burrito and had me spoon him with my leg over his and proceeded to take a TON of blood from him. He was crying so hard he was choking and saying mommy mommy mommy. This whole time i am crying silently while singing to him. We finish and I look over and my 5 year old is curled up in a ball in his chair (yup...he was with us...thought we were jsut going for a check up ya know).
I know he will be ok....he is already feeling and acting better. they did get one blood test back and show he is anemic (which I have been for years...I have to get shots since my body won't absorb it from food or supplements). We go in today to have him assessed and hopefully get more test results.
So..that is what is happening...I just watch him sleep (which he is doing a LOT of...very unusual for him...another sign of virus) and holding him close. I canNot sleep...I just watch him breathe. I am a FREAK! lol
Chase is doing better too. We have talked about why we have to do this, how doctor's have to keep us healthy and keep us from getting sick. He is trying to understand.
