Pediatrician Appointment (09.09.13)

Getting up early for these quarterly appointments isn't so bad when the sun is shining brightly and the skies are clear. I'm already dreading the drive in December when the roads will be snow and ice covered.
This morning Sarah's appointment was for 9:15 and my awesome mother in law came by at 8:00 to drive into the city with me. It's nice to have someone along for company and moral support. We arrived eight minutes late due to three big accidents on the main freeway but that was ok. Interesting note: Sarah started to cry about five minutes BEFORE we even arrived in the parkade. It's always discouraging to me when she starts to get upset and we haven't even seen the doctor. She wasn't really happy again until we got in the van. 

The visit today was pretty short. Mostly just a check up and a look at how she has grown.

Today she came in at:
Weight: 32.5 pounds (31.9 pounds in June)
Height: 40.75 inches (40.5 inches in June)
Head Circumference: 46.2cm (46.2 cm in June)

So the deal is that she's just small and she's following her own (slow) curve.

As for the seizure that happened in August, he said it sounded like a case where she scared herself, couldn't catch her breath and then passed out. This lack of oxygen caused a seizure. He said it could happen again or it might not. Generally these episodes stop around the age of six. I'm going to just keep hoping that it was a one time thing and that I never have to deal with it again.
