Timothy’s belated 18 month checkup

Timothy saw his pediatrician yesterday.  Have I mentioned that we really like her?  Anyway, as we already suspected, he is REALLY TALL!  He is definitely off the chart on height; actually, he is further off the chart than he was last time!  For the most part, he is doing really well.

The doctor did have one concern.  He has had a benign heart murmur since birth, and nothing she has heard so far made her concerned.  Unfortunately, she thinks she heard something mildly concerning this time, so we are going to take him to a specialist to get him checked out.  This isn’t an emergency, and probably isn’t anything serious.  He was definitely wiggling around during her exam, and she listened to his chest three separate times just to see if she was actually hearing what she thought she heard.  Unfortunately, she couldn’t positively rule out a problem, so he has an appointment on October 27 to be evaluated by a cardiologist down at the children’s hospital in Salt Lake City.  We would appreciate your prayers for him.

Other than that, he is doing really well!  I’ll post the stats at the end, just to be like my dear sister.  🙂

Timothy’s height:  36 inches (91.44 cm)

Timothy’s weight:  30 pounds 15 ounces (14.03 kg)

    I feel so honoured to be listed as an inspiration.

    It’s nice that Timothy is growing so well. Sounds like we’ll all get to look up to him one day. 😉

    About the heart murmur, it is great that your pediatrician was paying attention and got the referral so it can all be checked out. I will pray that the murmur is no problem and that you all have peace as you wait for the test and it’s results.

    Sorry to hear about the heart issue, but looks like they are taking good care of you all and a check-up can be a really good thing all around. We’ll keep you in our prayers. Thanks for you comments about B. Nice to know we’re dealing with the same fun, challenging, chaotic, times.
