Apparently, my last post where I mentioned a Very Important Dr Appt led some of you to believe that we are expecting another child.
I was simply talking about Lucas's Pediatric Endocrinologist visit.
Basically... he's just a skinny kid. The doctor thinks he's just genetically small. With Me being only 5'4" and XXXlbs (like I'm telling you!) and Matt being only 5'6" (if we're being generous) and 135lbs... well, our children don't have much hope as Linemen for any professional football teams.
His lab results were inconclusive. He did have one thyroid thing come back slightly low, but the doctor said that if there was a real thyroid issue, all three of the things they test for would have come back wonky. Doctor does want to re-check that stuff, so Matt's taking Lucas BACK into a lab on Monday to get the bloodwork done.
Provided those results are not abnormal, we don't have to go back until March for a weight check (which by the way is totally bogus - drive the 1/2 hour down there for a weight check when my ped can do it)... but whatever.
I really feel relieved. This was what I had believed all along. He's fine. He's happy. He's healthy. I'm overjoyed. I can breathe a sigh of relief.
And in case you needed a visual of this climbing monkey we've created:
