Our Visit To The Doctor

My little one had her 5 year check up last Friday. The visit went well. I think her favorite part of the visit is sitting up on that huge exam table and dragging all her toys up there. Yes, I bring a few toys on the trip just to keep her busy. She had her last vaccine until she is 11, which a big relief. Her eyes are still doing good since her surgery in June and she's growing at a normal rate. The only thing that was a concern was the sound of her heart murmur. She was born with a harmless murmur, which many children have at birth. The doctor mentioned it sounded a little louder than normal. So the pediatrician has referred us to a pediatric cardiologist just to check it out. It's better to be safe than sorry. Of course I couldn't get in right away with the cardiologist. Our appointment isn't until the beginning of November. Just enough time for me to think myself to death and worry. I wish the appointment was sooner, but that's what you get when you want to see a specialist. I hope she gets a good report from this cardiologist. Wish us luck.


  1. Hi Michelle, Thank you for the nice comment on my post about my uncle last week.

    I'm glad that your daughter's check up went well and that also her eyes have been doing great since her surgery!

    That is scary about the heart murmur but I am sure everything is fine. I was born with one and it's never caused me any problems. In fact, I thought it was gone because I'd never heard any doctor mention it until a few years ago a doctor picked it up during a routine exam! Still, it's something you'd prefer your daughter not to have so I will keep her in my prayers!

  2. If it was bad they would of seen you sooner. Good luck. Just what you need is more doctors :(

  3. The 5 year one is a big one. We had one this summer. They are aware of the shots and really feel scared. Hugs to you and better to check the heart murmur just to be safe. Still scary though.
