    Tears at the Hospital
    Thursday, April 13, 2006
    So yesterday was Corey appointment to see his Respiratory Consultant at the hospital. He's gone to only seing him every few months now as he's been doing so well. As well as checking his chesty and everything he is involved in all his care so looks how he's doing developmentally, socially and all that.
    So we get there and they had sent us to the wrong clinic so took us a while to find where we were supposed to be. The waiting room was packed but it seems there was more than one clinic running and we didn't wait too long. Corey was happily playing away anyway with the toys(especially the cars) they had on offer. So we were called by a nurse for weighing and measuring. Now since Corey has been able to express himself he has expressed a distaste for being weighed and measured. Don't know why because in the grand scheme of things this is hardly painful. Anyway he wasn't too bad standing on the scales but when she tried to stand him up and pulled the measuring thing to the top of his head he freaked and we had to go to another room for him to be laid down and measured that way. He still freaked out but at least we managed to get it done. So he has hardly put much weight on in the last coupld of months put has grown in length. he is now 25lb 8oz and 87.5cms tall.
    Then we went to see the doctor. Poor man, as soon as Corey set eyes on him the tears started. Anyway he settled down with some play in the room and the tears only came again when he listened to his chest but at least he didn't puke this time!
    All in all he is VERY happy with Corey's progression. He chest is clear and has been for over 2 yrs now(can you believe that!)
    He was amazed that Corey knew all his colours and shapes and said that at just over 2 yrs corrected that it was impressive. He also asked Corey to do some things(which he did) and said he was also impressed that he could do 6 and 7 word commands. He wasn't too concerned about the speach and just said to wait and let it come, which it will. He said not to even bother with the Flu jab this yr, he doesn't think he needs it. We asked about his funny looking legs and he said they were fine, just a it knock knee-d and we also asked about the funny looking lump he has on his foot. It resembles a verucca and has actually bled on occasion but he said it's from the blood pricks they do and it heals with scar tissue inside. If it caused a problem as he gets older then he could always have it removed.
    Anyway, we came away very happy and he only wants to see him every 6 months now :)
    A happy mummy!
