Yearly Doctor Visit

I took Dakota in for a physical last week. I didn't take him to the doctor last year for a checkup. I guess I just forgot to. He wasn't sick last year so he hasn't been to see his doctor in almost 2 years. I can't believe it's been that long! Before we went I told him he was probably going to have to get a tetanus booster since he was 12 yrs old now and I thought that was about the time he needed one. Turned out he had to get three shots! Yikes! Sorry buddy!

Three shots, a finger prick, and a 30-min ear irrigation later we were FINALLY able to leave - WOW - needless to say, my young man wasn't in the best mood the rest of the day.

FYI: If your child is acting like they can't hear you, maybe they can't. Dakota failed his hearing test they did until they irrigated his ears. You would not believe the nasty, junky stuff that came out of there! Once they did that, he passed with flying colors.
