Jude's 3 year check up


Jude was a great patient! He did his hearing test, eye test, weight and height. Luckily for the nurse we put some powder in his stinky old shoes so she would not throw up when he had to take them off! He is right at the 50% mark in height and weight. They are estimating his height to be around 5'10" as an adult. Whatever that is - I don't know that I believe you can really estimate that. Anyhow, the only issue is the skin pigmentation issue that we have known about but did not seem to be a problem. Dr. Keith believes it to be Virtiligo. Oddly enough, the same thing that Michael Jackson has (makes me so proud). There are some other issues that go along with it that I really don't want to think too much about. He gave me a referral for a pediatric dermatologist at Vanderbilt that he thinks will take a long time to get into. For now, I am doing the dreaded reading on the Internet and praying... Dr. Keith is checking into any correlation between that and his seizures. I guess I will give more info when I know!

Goodness! I know how stressed and worried you must be. We will be praying. Do me a favor... do not read anything about it on the Internet. REmember the verse about... whatever is true... think on these things. Don't worry about the what ifs. Wait until you know. You don't need the stress. Let me know what I can do.

I was thinking about my comment this morning and wanted to clarify the yuck. I didn't mean it as in gross, but as in that's a really difficult thing to deal with, especially with a baby on the way. Also, carmen is right. Reading info on the internet will only make you worry about things that you don't even need to worry about.
