The 6 hour trip to the pediatrician

      No Comments on The 6 hour trip to the pediatrician

We just made it home from the pediatricians office. Gavin was on a borderline automatic crisis,  likely triggered by the carrier ride and Elliott and Emmett were on complete overload. 

Gavin pulled through without incident,  thank God. 

Elliott and Emmett both checked out a-okay. We are going to take a more cautious approach to medicating Elliott.  Due to the fact that all the records haven’t transferred yet,  we didn’t start anything.

We like the conservative approach and that’s one of the reasons we followed him 30 minutes north of his old practice.

Gavin’s health has to take priority but we are going to move at a pace with Elliott that will be as fast as we are both comfortable with.  Lizze and I find that perfectly acceptable.  Because our kids tend to be um..persnickety, when it comes to their health needs,  he wants to get all the records before we go forward with anything.

Elliott and Emmett were both pretty out of control while we were there.

How can I best describe them today?  Do remember the old Gummy Bears cartoon?  Elliott and Emmett were bouncing here and there and everywhere. 

We survived this ordeal and while Gavin is still a little unstable,  he’s behaving quite well. 

Now we are going to take it easy for the rest of the day and I’m going to try and walk tonight.  Today was completely exhausting and I’m throughly drained of anything that remotely resembles energy and motivation.
