In Which Connor Goes To The Doctor

Connor had a pediatrician appointment this morning, so he missed school.  He's got a field trip tomorrow with school, so it's been kind of an unusual week for him routinewise.  The appointment went well, and we went over how Connor is developing, what changes have happened in his medical care, prescriptions, etc.

Connor also received his four year vaccinations.  The hospital personnel debated about it a little bit and ultimately decided not to give Connor the DTaP shot, but instead just the Td shot, as they were concerned about the risk of the shot causing a seizure.  Interesting stuff.  Or at least I found it interesting.  Connor probably would have found it more interesting if they'd simply not given him any vaccinations at all.  Poor little guy.

We debated on whether or not to space his vaccinations out or hold off on them entirely given his current seizure issues, but ultimately decided it would be less stressful for him to get them all done at once than to have to keep coming in.  So far so good-- we'll see how he does over the next couple of days.  He was very brave-- he only cried for about a minute after the second round of shots, and he quieted down as soon as I picked him up.  I'm happy we have such a good natured kid. 

And on an entirely different topic . . .you should go check this out!  Kat Speyer's posted a couple of sneak preview images from that rainy-day photo shoot we did back in January with her and her husband, Justin.  Don't they look great?  I've posted another one here because I couldn't resist that cute little grin. 

That's my big boy!
