Today he THREE doctor appointments!!! The first doctor appointment was the pediatric neurosurgeon. We met Sherri there! How cool, huh! Dr Puccioni says everything is great! We don't see him for 2 months! Yeah!
Next we drove to Omaha to see Dr. Troia, he opthamologist. They did an eye exam; and it was AWFUL! We won't do that again. They dilated his eyes and they put numbing drops in them. Then he proceeded to use a clamp that clamped onto his eyelids and then PRIED his eyes open and wouldn't let them close to even blink. Then they took this stick-like instrument and started moving his eyeballs all around. It was HORRIBLE!!!! He just screamed! and momma cried, too. He says everything is normal and his optic nerves look wonderful. Good news; if he had to be traumatized. He wants to see us again when he is 6 months old. I asked him is he was going to have to do that test again and he said, "no". I told him that was good, because we wouldn't come back if he was going to. I don't think I can EVER do that again. He had big marks on his eyelids for over an hour.
The last appointment was with the pediatric surgeon who did his hydrocele surgery. I'm glad I didn't make a special trip to Omaha just for that. I waited in his office for almost an hour. Then he came rushing in and took his diaper off and said, "looks great, the steri-strips will fall off in another week". Well, I could've told you that. He was seriously in the room maybe 30 seconds. It's an HOUR drive! Thank goodness I was already there! Matthew had enough trauma for the day though, so I'm glad in a way it was no more than that.
That was an exhausting day! Whooo! Well time to relax! And smooch my baby!
