Hey guys! Between my blah mood last week and my brief paragraph regarding Logan’s potential health problem back on Monday I know I had some of you a bit worried. This pen paller decided to use the ever so popular salutation as my post title, and then tell you all what has been going on.
We recently decided to switch from the pediatrician we didn’t really care for to the family doctor I (mostly) grew up with. In addition to seeing Logan, my doctor was all for taking Gabe on as well– he has an appointment with her tomorrow, but she has already seen Logan twice. At Logan’s initial check up he was acting a bit uptight so “The Bach” tickled him, and while he did laugh, the tickling potentially caused certain things down below to retract when she checked his boy parts, so much so she couldn’t detect the right you-know-what.
“The Bach” had us come back last week in the hopes that he’d be more relaxed. The good news was that she felt the ball, the bad news was it was higher than it should have been and maybe even stuck up in the tubing. We were then referred to a pediatric surgeon as the worst case scenario, and reason for my blah mood, was that they might have to go in and manually drop the ball.
Yesterday was that consultation, and while it was confirmed that the ball is a bit high up, the surgeon didn’t see any reason to go in there to move it. THANK GOODNESS! I can’t tell you how relieved Gabe and I are. Not only do we not have the resources to cover what our insurance wouldn’t have, our 3.5-year-old son has already been through so much.
In spite of the doctors up in his koolaid, the Loganator has been doing really well. He has been enjoying playing outside when the weather’s decent and watching Tangled and Jake & the Neverland Pirates when it’s not. He recently got to ride along in a semi-truck while his daddy hauled wheat and he’s already talking about going again when it’s the sugar beets’ turn. In the meantime, he plays with many a truck and tractor here and will likely show them all to Othella and “Papa Havasan” when they each visit next month.
Thanks to those of you who have been keeping Logan (and his parents!) in your thoughts and prayers, and as always thanks for reading!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
