Elisabeth had her 4 year wellness check today with our doctor. Thanks Elisa for watching my other two for us during her appointment. I prepared her for the appointment by explaining some of the things they'd be doing so that there wasn't anything too shocking. I told her she'd be getting shots and that they would hurt, but that the pain would go away very quickly. Everything went surprisingly well, she didn't even cry when she got 2 shots! Amazing! Well, I did bribe her a little...I told her that if she was good during her appointment and would be still for her shots then afterwards we could...(I had her fill in the end of my sentence and she choose to get an ice cream cone from McDonalds, which is what we did). Elisabeth is very healthy, she still has her heart murmur but that's not a worry for us. She got that checked out at the Children's Hospital at the University of Washington last year and the specialist told us that 100% of all children have functional heart murmurs at one time or another and to just forget it because there was nothing wrong with her heart. Here are her stats:
Weight: 32 lb. 13 oz = 27%
Height: 3' 3"= 23%
Body Mass Index: 15.5 = 53%
Now she only needs two more shots before kindergarten which she'll get when she turns 5 next year and then after that she won't need to get shots again until she's 11! Hooray!
