Elyse's Ear Update and Aaron's Five Year Well-Check

So Aaron had his five year well-check the other day and while we were there I checked to see if the doctor had Elyse's CAT scan report yet.  It showed that there are no tumors or anything that will need to be surgically removed, but she does have a lot of fluid in that ear, though the fluid seems unrelated to the spot.  The fluid could be cold related or she could potentially require a tube in that ear to help drain the fluid.  All of this is based on what our pediatrician had to say, but we won't know for sure until we see the specialist next month.  So thank you for all of your good thoughts and prayers, and thank God that it seems to be nothing more than a birth mark.

As for Aaron and his well-check...He is Super Boy.  He is forty-three pounds of pure muscle and with the exception of a very picky diet, he is super duper healthy.  The doctor asked Aaron what his favorite vegetables were and he clarified that chicken nuggets were NOT a vegetable.  He was all up-to-date on his shots which meant, to his GREAT relief, that he did not require any at that visit.  After his appointment, I took him for a celebratory doughnut which he thought was a fantastic idea.

Sounds like the kids are doing great! I am glad to here Elyse's ear is good. My baby, Isaiah, keeps ear infections and I honestly think he needs tubes... but hey what am I? I am not a certified doctor, just a mother!
