Hadley had her six-year doctors appointment last Thursday. Here are her stats from the appt:
Height: 115.5 cm or 3′ 9.47″ (56th percentile)
Weight: 51 lbs (79th percentile)
BMI: 17.34 (87th percentile)
Blood Pressure: 90/58
After the nurse measured Hadley’s height, weight, and blood pressure, we saw our doctor. He had a conversation with Hadley about her habits (drinking milk, eating veggies, exercising, getting enough sleep etc.) and how she likes school. He asked if she knew her ABCs (which she promptly recited in record speed) and could count to ten (“I can count OVER 100!”). He asked a bunch of questions that felt like an interview which Hadley answered extensively like an enthusiastic celebrity while he performed her physical exam. In fact she was so distracted by giving her thorough answers she didn’t even notice he had done the reflex test (which she loves) and tried to call him out on it. “Um, you forgot to do the” mimes hitting her knee, “test.” And we all laughed and assured her he did the test–which she passed with flying colors. He said she did great and everything looks fantastic. She was also happy to hear that she didn’t need any immunizations, just the flu shot, which Ana would also be getting (I’m all about equality).
Hadley got her flu shot, declared it didn’t even hurt, picked a sticker, and we were done!
