Parker’s 2 month check up

I hate the 2 month well check visit. Hate it. That first round of shots always breaks my heart.

Parker and I both had appointments today. i was supposed to have a mole removed, but insurance wouldn’t cover the removal of the mole, but they would cover the biopsy. So, we can’t afford to get it removed. Guess I just hope and pray it’s nothing. Other than that, my blood pressure was good, so everything else seems just fine. Still not seeing any effects from the Zoloft, and praying that kicks in soon. (As I’m sure my husband and kids are praying that it does, too!)

Parker got a clean bill of health and looks GREAT! He weighed in at 10 pounds 13.5 ounces and was 22 3/4 inches long. He’s doubled his birth weight, and is really filling out. Must be all those milkshakes he’s drinking 😉

She put him on his tummy and he proudly showed how he could lift his head and even come SOOOOOO close to rolling over. As soon as he figures out how to tuck that arm, there will be no stopping this boy.

The doctor did tell me that Parker has a umbilical hernia. She told me it’s nothing to worry about, and it should heal itself by the time he’s a year old. So, I’m just not going to worry. Really. No, I did google it, and it’s apparently a very common thing in infants. I do feel better after reading that.

I think that’s all the big, exciting news around here. Parker is resting peacefully after his shots, even while all the other kids are running around and acting like little heathens. So glad he’s such a good baby.

    Insurance doesn’t make any sense. Why cover the biopsy and not the removal. How stupid!

    I am glad Parker is in good health. But you mom should try to get that mole looked at soon. Or at least monitor it closely.

    Because they want to make sure it’s worth removing first. (Eye Roll). I hate insurance, too. I hope Obama does something like he said he would!

    I shot you ou t in the mail another envelope with useful coupons and fun articles about stuff you can do with the kids. Hope it brightens your day.

    The shots are always rough! Glad to hear he handled them so well.

    Drag about the insurance… the medical system is such a mess in the US, but it’s also a mess up here in Canada… just a different mess. LOL
