I'm Sorry....I Guess.

So last Friday I was very upset about Anders Dr. appointment. The Dr. was very rude to me about Anders weight, accusing me of poor nutrition. Although I'm not sorry I was upset for the way I was treated, I am sorry I was upset she tested his thyroid. The test came back for hypothyroidism. I was not given any information as to really what this meant, just that I needed to start him on a daily thyroid medicine and return for a follow up in one month.

After a google search, I found out that going untreated, this can be very serious in infants and children. One side effect is developmental delays, physical and mental. As I observe Anders I see none of these effects. Although he is in the 50th percentile for height, it doesn't seem there are any issues for me to worry about. I hope the medication will correct the issue and in a month I'll find out more. As of now I'm going to stay with this doctor until I get more information. I do have to say that without knowing anything about this problem, it feels a little stressful.

I am so thankful now that Anders Dr. decided to run this test. I need to forget about the way I was treated and know that the outcome was better for my child's health. So for now...I'm sorry...I guess.


What You Will Find Here

This is a blog about me and my life. I write about the everything, and the nothing that consumes a stay-at-home mom of two. My monster is my one year old little boy, and his sister is my four year old daughter. You should know that I am not a writer, I'm not a speller, but I think I'm funny. I really get a kick out of myself sometimes. The truth is....I'm funnier in my head. So often, this blog is a bad attempt at humor and sarcasm, but mostly it's about the mundane, wonderful, boring, exciting, crabby, happy days we have together.
