Hehe.Â The title of this post is for all of you Naked Gun fans out there.Â For everyone else, I have no idea why on earth you are here because those type of movies shaped (warped) my latter adolescent years therefore I am sure the tidbits here and there drive you nuts.
Anyway, as a follow up to before, Caterpillar had his follow up appointment and although I did feel a little like I verbally vomitted a bunch of random symptoms all over the doctor, I think it went well.Â We are now switching from soy milk to rice milk.Â It turns out about 50% of the kiddos who have a hard time processing cows milk, also have a hard time processing soy milk.Â Soooo, we are once again back off of dairy for the boy.Â
However, after being told we would have about a six week wait period to get into the recommended allergist, we were able to snag an opening for Friday.Â In addition to the allergist, the doctor is having me set up an appointment with the behavior specialist.Â He said he’s not overly concerned with where he’s at with regard to his behavior (the main thing being he’s not walking or talking much yet) but he said they too have a long waitlist and it’s better to get in sooner rather than later.
One of my main concerns was how much the little guy urinates.Â I mean the guy can soak through his diaper and entire bed in under two hours of sleep.Â It’s redunkulous.Â However, the doctor ran his sugars and crossed diabetes off of our list, so that was a big sigh of relief.
The last resort if the allergist and behavior specialist come up empty handed is a sleep specialist.Â Â Since he’s only sleeping 2 – 4 hours at a time, it’s something they want to look at.Â However, if it’s a food allergy and we find out when we avoid that his tummy aches go away, all is well.Â It’s our ace in the hole.Â So, we are kinda rolling the dice, and taking a chance.
But, you take a chance getting up in the morning, crossing the street or sticking your face in a fan.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop!!!
