Update on Isaiah

Yesterday Isaiah developed quite a cough, so I rescheduled his (and Grace's) well-baby visit for today to go see their regular pediatrician.

I love his pediatrician! She is so supportive of all of our decisions, especially when it comes to us not vaccinating, extended breastfeeding, and vegetarian eating! She immediately said she wanted him off of antibiotics, which was great news to me. After listening to his lungs for quite a while, she decided another chest x-ray would be good since she could hear something "off." He still has some fluid, but that will slowly go away, no pneumonia, but just watch the cough and if it gets worse, we'll do something more aggressive with it.

Grace's visit wasn't so nice. She's off the growth chart underweight again. It's been a longterm battle to get her to eat anything of substance. If only I hadn't gotten her weaned by 19mo. (My goal with Isaiah is at LEAST to go to 2 years old) In addition to that news, it was almost impossible to check anything. At 3 yr old, she knows that doctors can hurt! But she's healthy.

So, Praise the Lord we are not dealing with any serious side affects from last week's accident!

Funny how kids are "hungry" for sweets but not good food!

Side note, I love the bible verse addition. I try to check my blog daily just to see the verse for the day.

Praise the Lord for the good report-we'll be praying the cough doesn't get any worse. Love y'all!

But that's just it.... she doesn't eat sweets. Just low calorie carbs. We have an acquaintance who knows where we can buy goat's milk and yogurt. Way better for you than cow milk.
