Appointment Updates x3

Camden had his 3 year old well check yesterday and Adalynn had her weight checked with our pediatrician, Dr. Baker. I also returned to the eye doctor this week, to check on the progress of my uveitis.
Camden is doing very well. He is still so much smaller than Broderick was at this age and weighs in at 32 lbs. He is 38 inches tall-both put him right around the 50th percentile. He was a little upset about getting a shot, but did well and didn't fight the nurse at all. He was more excited getting a bandage and a sucker and getting out of the doctor's office in order to go to a birthday party at Pump It Up (an inflatable party place). We made it to the party 1 1/2 hours late and he didn't get to jump very long, but he didn't mind at all. He is such as easy going little boy!

Adalynn is also gaining well. She gained 27 ounces in about 30 days, which is exactly what she should be doing. It puts her at 9 pounds 4 ounces. We can definitely tell she is getting bigger. She is beginning to get rolls on her thighs and her cheeks have filled out tremendously. She is such a good baby. No offense to Broderick and Camden, but she's definitely got them beat! She sleeps so well at night (only waking up once and then going right back to sleep). She also sleeps a lot later than the boys in the mornings (until 8:30/9:00). She rarely fusses and usually it is only because she is wet/dirty, cold/hot, hungry, or gassy.

My uveitis is still flaring up and I am still on the dilating drops and steroids. The dilating drops are miserable. I can't see squat and they give me headaches as my eyes are working hard to try to focus. I do have an appointment with my regular doctor next week. He is going to do some blood work. There is a possibility of having an underlying medical condition that is causing the uveitis. He wants me to start seeing an opthamologist instead of an optometrist, as well as have the blood work done. Uveitis itself is a pretty serious condition that can cause blindness and some of the other conditions (like Lupus-are a little frightening). I will keep you posted as to what happens next.

    I seem to recall that John would fuss as a result of many of the same conditions. Perhaps it runs in the family?

  2. We're coming home tomorrow, so I hope I can see you all soon! BTW- you and Camden made the cutest cupcakes ever! Jess and I made some kind of like that for halloween one year. We'll have to have a cupcake party!
    Let me know how your doctor's appointment goes! You're in my prayers! Allison*
