Remember my 18 month appointment? Yesterday was my check-up weigh-in, and even though I only gained 4 oz, Dr. Andy was okay with my weight – apparently I’m holding steady on a growth curve for now… It’s not a curve anyone else is on, but at least I’m gaining at a respectable pace for me.
I think Dr. Andy just enjoys watching me play with his toys and run around the office because he invited me back AGAIN on Monday. Apparently, I have a bit of a respiratory infection – it’s probably viral, but he prescribed some antibiotics and wants to check back in since my pulsox was a little low (91-92).
The good news here is that 1) this infection is asymptomatic – it’s not bothering me a bit, and I’m not audibly wheezing or anything and 2) it’s not setting off any asthma. There are loads of different triggers for asthma (viruses, allergies, exertion, etc.), but it’s a good sign that whatever malady this is, it’s not setting off any wheezing flare ups.
We’ll be heading back to the office on Monday and then back in for another weigh-in in a month… If Dr. Andy wants to hang out, though, he could just ask, you know? We could meet up and play with the train tables at Barnes & Noble – we don’t HAVE to always hang out at his office!
