Return of the Holter Monitor

Posted Jun 17 2009 7:15pm
It's that time again. Aiden is being followed by his "shadow". We picked up the holter monitor yesterday and we will be returning it today after school. I informed Dr. Pediatric Cardiology's office that they shall not call with the results this week, since they will call on Friday and my birthday is Saturday. I don't need to be depressed any more than necessary. We'll hear from them on Monday.

Aiden also had his weigh in yesterday. He gained 9 oz last week. Dr. Pediatrician came in the room while I was getting Aiden dressed. She had some confusing news. According to the report from the nutritionist, Aiden is in the 20th percentile for weight on the Down syndrome chart. Aiden has never ever been in the 20th percentile. He weighed in at 19 lbs, 11 oz. That does not make for the 20th percentile; more like 3-5 percentile. Either the nutritionist confused Aiden with one of the three other kids seen at Dr. Genes' office or Aiden is harbouring fat that we don't know about. If Aiden was in the 20th percentile, we wouldn't be going through all this.

Aiden's enrollment packet for the Little Light House 2009-2010 school year is at Dr. Pediatrician's office needing her input on a few things.

Speaking of school years, I either need to locate Aiden's birth certificate ( somewhere in his bedroom ) or go buy a new one for the local school district. I still need to get him enrolled there and we're waiting on the IEP date.
