We took the kids yesterday to the doctor to get their rounds of the flu shot. Rylan got a chance to try the new FluMist flu vaccine which is a mist shot up the nose. Rylan took the first nostril just fine but went ballistic when the nurse tried the second. Kaitlyn had a normal flu shot which she wasn't too happy with.
We have confirmed that Kaitlyn has a condition called the pectus excavatum. Her case appears to not be severe however we were referred off to the thoracic(rawr!) surgeon to have it further looked over. Normally, this condition is more of a cosmetic than functional concern so it's more of just waiting to see how it evolves over the years.
To wrap up the visit, we got a referral for a dermatologist for Rylan as he has a minor case of eczema as well. His case mainly causes heat bumps on his arms and cheeks. His skin will be much easier to clear up than it was with Kaitlyn.
