More owies :(

Poor little guy had an appointment with the pediatrician today. No big deal right? Except for the fact that he had to get 3 shots. The poor kid is fresh off the synergist shot season (which included 2 shots a month for the past 6 months) & of course he was due for 3 vaccines today. He was rightfully upset the entire appointment, crying "Owie, owie." It's heartbreaking. He also cries out for Abby, his oldest sister, also heartbreaking. I wish for once he could visit a doctor without undergoing pain. This is picture sums up his mood the rest of the day.
Whenever he'd see someone new afterward he'd point to his thighs & say "owie, owie" he just couldn't shake it off today. Normally he gets over it quickly, but he's had it with shots. I have too by the way.
On the other hand, he sure is a good helper in the kitchen...always happy to lend a hand!
18 month
Weight 23lbs 5oz - 15th percentile
Height 31.75 inches - 25th percentile
Plus no murmur heard!
He's getting there...little by little.

Poor little Joshie boy. I hope today is a better day. I'd take those shots for him if I could. Love you Josh.

As another HLHS parent, I'm glad I came across your blog. Read it through and appreciate your sharing. Our Rudy is earlier along in the battle, but fighting hard (6mos in ICU after Norwood and back again now after only 2 weeks at home--ugh). We draw comfort from your story.

Oh Josh, shots stink.

I hope (and pray) you get a chance to forget about shots soon.

Oh and I am sure your mood, Allison, you look pretty stressed in that photo also.

Hugs to all of you.
