Peds Appointments and Allergic Reactions...

Yesterday, Gabe went to his 6 month Doctor appointment. Oh he was such a good boy throughout the whole appointment. He cried of course when he got his three shots, but that was to be expected. His whole face went bright red and I had to blow in it to get him to breath. He just doesnt like the pokies, but who does!?! So here are the long and awaited STATS:
Weight: 15 ibs and 15 oz (25%)
Length: 25 in (10%)
Head: 42 cm (10%)
Weight/Length: 70%
Gabe's Doctor said that he was growing well at his own pace. We might not have a very TALL boy on our hands. Dallas just wants him to make 6'. My brother is quite tall and Dall has some very tall cousins.... so who knows. So the Doctor appointment went well. I got Gabe home and when I took a look at him, his eye lids were bright red and very puffy! I panicked of course. It was a good thing I was at my Mom's because she knew exactly what was going on. My brother use to flare up like that when he was a baby. So I called Gabe's Doctor and told them that Gabe was having an Allergic Reaction to one of the shots. They told us to get back to their office to take a look at him. I also noticed that he was coughing a little since the shots and was breathing rapidly. That is always scary. They took us right back to a room, told us to get Gabe undressed, just to make sure he didnt have any rashes or spots anywhere on his little body. He didnt!!! Then they took his Oxygen levels. They were great. So, the doc said that he is allergic to one of the shots he was given. he was given three so it is hard to know exactly what one it was. So... Gabers get to see an Allergy Specialist!!! We have to pin point what he is allergic to before he goes back for his 9 month appointment or they wont give him any of his shots. Oh BOTHER!!! I was hoping Gabe would be like his mommy and not be allergic to anything. Dall is allergic to a few things like Horses, Cats and Grass. He's taking after daddy on this one! Thank goodness it didnt turn out to be more serious. And thank goodness for Benadryl and Tylenol. Gabe slept so soundly through the night. I got pictures of the Before and After but the After picture does not do the real thing justice.

What a Good Sport!!!
