Eight Year Doctor Appointment

Ana had her eight-year doctor appointment on Thursday. (Between the delay with her six year appointment and her pediatrician passing away this year, she never had a seven year appt.) Here are her stats from the appointment:

Height: 51.57″ (71st percentile)
Weight: 60.2 lbs (63th percentile)
BMI: 16 (53th percentile)
Blood Pressure: 100/72

8 Year Check Up
Ana was a little nervous about having a new doctor, but having been to her sister’s appointment last month she was a little more at ease. He came in and asked her a bunch of standard questions (Do you wear a bike helmet? Yes. Do you eat fruits and veggies? Yes. When do you go to bed and wake up? 8pm, 6:45am Do you play sports? Soccer, swimming, biking, running. What is your favorite things about school? Math, science, spelling.) which she responded very thoroughly. They talked back and forth for several minutes and then he looked at me and said, “well, I am obviously not concerned about her. Clearly she is just perfect. I don’t even have anything to recommend!” Then he gave her a “healthy high five!”

Ana was very happy to find out she didn’t need any immunizations at this appointment and ecstatic to find out she won’t get one until she is 11! But both girls did have to get flu shots so the appointment wasn’t entirely without needles. Ana didn’t think it was a big deal. Hads on the other hand left the office in tears. Oh well. You can’t win ’em all.
