2nd Year Neuro Follow Up

A lot has happened since Christmas and New Years. Jadyn got her cast off on Jan. 3rd and that was great. Thankfully it only had to be unraveled instead of being cut. We made sure to pick that cast because that saw would scare anybody. Her wrist was healed enough for the doctor to leave off the cast so off we went being very careful but Jadyn didn't even miss a beat. Never knew she had it on and never talked about it again. We had a busy January between birthday parties almost every weekend. One of them was Jadyn's bounce party rescheduled. She had about as much fun as a 2 year old with a 104 degree temperature would :-( I know... our luck stinks, lol. On Friday afternoon before her party she woke up from her nap with a high fever but not really feeling bad at all. Saturday was a different story. Snotty, congested, coughing, and fever. You could tell she didn't feel well either. I loaded her up with Motrin and Tylenol because the party had to go on and off we went.
That weekend we had bought tickets to the Raven's game in New England (horrible and very sad loss) so Jadyn stayed with her grandparents while we made the 6 hour drive to Boston. Her fever didn't really go away the entire weekend so we had to make a trip to the doctors when we returned and she was diagnosed with RSV. Her first diagnosis with RSV-not too bad. She ended up getting better and things were back to normal.
I had never gotten an appointment in the mail for her 2 year old neuro check up so I decided to email the doc to see what was the deal. I ended up making the appointment but it wouldn't be until March.
In the meantime, Jadyn did have her 2 year old pedi appointment and that went well. She was on track/target with all her developmental milestones. She is tall, heavy, and just an overall large child. We did get a small lecture about her weight but both Jayson and I knew the tech did not get an accurate weight so we weren't really that concerned. We don't feel her every second of the day-although she would be in heaven if we did. We cut back on milk and switched to 1-2% depending on what we buy.
Can't remember much of Feb. I guess it was rather uneventful. On came March and not much happened there either, lol. We finally had her neuro appointment on March 20th and it went well. Our doc was very pleased with Jadyn's progression and thinks she is doing well (obviously-that isn't even a question!). Her head circumference is fine and he doesn't think another 6 month visit is really necessary as long as we stay on top of any signs/symptoms of increased cranial pressure-which is always in the back of my mind. I'll have to make an appointment after her 3rd birthday to visit the clinic again.
We booked a Disney vacation for the 2nd week in June. I'm excited to go since we haven't been since 2005 when just Jayson and I went. I know Jadyn will really enjoy the trip although she'll only be 2.5 years old. We are staying at a Disney value resorts and bought 4 days worth of park tickets. I sure hope the weather is nice.
We are looking forward to nice weather to stay around in Baltimore. Happy Easter!
