Day at the Doc (post for the grandparents)

We were able to spend almost the entire day at the Doctors last week.  They all needed Wellness Checkups.  So off we headed at 9am and returned home at 2pm.  We did stop at Taco Bell for lunch and checked the mail for packages.

Tennyson and Charlotte were lucky and opted to have a few shots done.  Tennyson was so worn out that she fell asleep in her high chair before I could get her some dinner.  She slept through the night.  Poor girl.    Charlotte  fell asleep before dinner with a fever of 103.4, but woke up for food.

Jayce has had some phantom knee pain lately and had a regular diet of Motrin.  Jason and I have wondered if the pain was real or as severe has he had portrayed it because it seemed like it would flair up at convenient moments.  The doctor ordered X-rays and blood drawn.  I almost didn't wait to get all that done.  Then I realized at how stressed he was about the blood being drawn and decided that this would prove to me if the pain was real.  He did it, with a death grip on me.  I am convinced that his knee really hurts.  Just wish we could figure it out so he can get better.

Grahm got off easy this time around, well we do have a ENT appointment later this week.

Wow, what a day! We've been stuck at the doc's like that before, and my kids were just plain done halfway through. Your kids are true sports for hanging on like that. I hope Jayce's knee doesn't have anything seriously wrong with it. Maybe it's just growing pains:) Annie had been complaining about the bottom of her foot hurting so bad that she couldn't run in gym or gymnastics much. I finally bought her a new (and expensive) pair of running shoes for gym. She seems to be fine now. Who knows if it was just Annie being overly dramatic, or if she genuinely was having issues.
