LH had his update at the Ortho today. Before we met with the Doctor, LH went for more X-rays – his legs were done again, as well as his neck (from the side and front). He was a great patient – did exactly what was asked of him, even without me standing right beside him. He got a lizard sticker for being so good.
The visit with Dr. M. was quick, but good. The doctor has no concerns with LH’s developments. He is quite happy with how things are going, though he did mention bowing of the legs will be an issue later on, but we will deal with that when it comes up. I asked about activity restrictions, and he said the only one would be summersaults. Too bad that’s something LH loves to do. He gave me two options – to continue to see him, or be followed by the ped. I chose him.
I mentioned my concern about his head growth and he suggested going back to the pediatrician as Dr M doesn’t keep track of head sizes. I called the ped, but the receptionist will have to ask the ped if he will see LH without a new referral. Not a big deal, just frustrating.
We don’t need to go back to the ortho until next Feb!
