I took Ledger in for his 18 month appointment on Tuesday, about a month late. He was as happy as could be in the waiting room, and then we walked back to the room…Oh.My.Gosh. I was hoping he would forget all about his surgery/recovery/Doctors by now, but he didn’t.
As soon as he saw the room, he turned around and took off running, and didn’t stop hysterically crying, with big alligator tears falling from his cheeks the entire time.
And to end with a big cherry on top, his mom held him down while two nurses gave him two shots :) He was mad at me the entire way home.
Even though I could hardly hear what the PA had to say over the loud sobs coming from my toddler, I was pleasantly surprised to learn sledgehammer has gained some weight! It looks like his surgery has paid off.
Weight: 25.8 42% (Huge accomplishment right there!)
Height: 33.8 in. 78%
Many people have commented on how happy Ledger is now. It’s all due to surgery. He now eats (still working on vegetables and fruits), sleeps, and is rarely sick anymore.
Even though it was difficult recovery, surgery was the best decision we ever made!
And I thought I'd share a little gem we recently discovered. Ledger hasn't stopped watching it all morning.
