Two Weeks

Two weeks till we leave!  Today I spent an hour and a half at what was supposed to be a routine visit for M just to fill out her school medical forms.  The office randomly assigned my medically complex child the new doctor in the practice instead of HER doctor for this visit.  He spent some time questioning me about her translated shot records from Ukraine.  The ones that are three years old now.  This child that we had titers drawn for to test immunity when we visited the international adoption clinic.  The info that was in her file...
He seemed unconcerned that my child with CP only went from 1% on the growth chart to 2.9%.  She is now smaller than her 2 years younger brother.  I asked for a script for duocal to add more calories to her diet.  Nope.  But we are worried about how Ukraine administered only 3 rounds of polio vaccinations....  

Mkay.

I can totally see how old, and probably made up vaccination records trump proven immunity.

Whatever.

I headed straight for coffee before taking her back to school. 
Good times.

You might try Benecal for her. You can get it from Walgreens.com w/o a scrip. It's a little pricey but not horrid.

My guy is little but nobody ever seems concerned as long as the curve stays normal, if he's at 3% for weight no problem as long as he doesn't drop below HIS average. If I'm making sense, been at a Cub Scout meeting all night.



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
