The lowdown on today’s doctors appointments

The lowdown on today’s doctors appointments

Both Elliott and Emmett had appointments this morning with their pediatrician. This was a regular well-check and an ADHD follow-up as well.

Elliott was really anxious because he knew he needed a vaccine. Turns out he needed two vaccines, meningitis and HPV. The HPV was the final in a series of three and the meningitis is required by the school now.

Anyway, Emmett’s appointment went well and it was quickly over.

Elliott’s was more complicated because we’re dealing with several things that need considerably more attention and follow-up.

We bumped up Elliott’s antidepressant a little but because he’s really struggling and that was his psychologists suggestion but we’ve exceeded the limits of his pediatricians comfort level in regards to managing his mental health medication. Thankfully, I was able to call and get Elliott into Akron Children’s Hospital psychiatry department. Unfortunately, that’s not until November.
