Pediatric whatnot

So...I take Lola in for her 4 y/o check-up a couple weeks ago. She's fine (I categorically refute "she's on track to being overweight" - what is wrong with doctors these days?) but I did ask about the health of her nails and nailbeds. Her nails seem thicker, bumpy almost.

The Dr. checked, noticed what I did but thought they were fine. Then the same Dr. called back this week, she wants to re-check based on her research.

So she and one other MD poked Lola's fingers, did a pulse-ox (which was fine) and are referring us to a pediatric pulmonologist. Something to do with oxygen, lungs, but she's most likely fine, we just want to rule out Cystic Fibrosis or other genetic issues.

So...yah. Can't make the appt until the referral is processed, so yet more 'here's slightly off-putting news that you can't do anything with" nonsense.

Fun. Oh, and the krazees came home last night and...actually, I don't want to talk about it. Suffice to say others in the house EXERCISING with LOLA at 1am and PASSING OUT ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR are not the activities that lead to a restful night prior to an early seminar. At least, not for this loser.
