HappiLeigh and hapersmion, thank you for the reassurance! She really has a taste for paper--we have to watch her every second!
Midwife did PKU 3 days after dd's birth, if I remember correctly.
Nicole730--that is so sad
. I can't imagine what those poor parents must be feeling. It certainly does put things in perspective. Which I need right now because I am stressing out.
Last week, our ped decided he heard a "click" in her left hip and wrote a prescription for a ?bilateral ultrasound on it, to rule out hip dysplasia. He also referred us to a pediatric orthopedic dr. to have him read the ultrasound. I wasn't thrilled about this, but I figure, it's just an ultrasound, not an x-ray or anything, and hopefully it will rule it out so I don't have to keep worrying. Well, our appointment was today for the ultrasound. The office just called to tell me that my dd is over 5 months, and the ultrasound tech said the test won't show anything because she is too old, and they won't do it. She suggested I call my dr. and see what he wants to do (like an x-ray). I feel NO WAY are they zapping my dd's midsection with an x-ray machine on the off chance she has this condition. I'm getting myself more and more worked up the more I think about it! And of course, the ped. doesn't get in until 9:30 today, so I have to wait to speak to them.
Anyone have any experience with this that can help calm my fears?
Lauren, enjoy your cruise--it sounds fantastic!
