I can’t believe that it’s been a week since I’ve posted anything. I guess I’ve just been busy. Actually I have been posting every day at Our Crafts ~N~ Things- so if you’re looking for fun activities to do with your toddler or preschooler you can check out my other blog.
Anyhoo- I figured I should do a little updating.
I don’t know if you remember or not- but last year around this time Hailey was diagnosed with trigger thumb on her right hand. (Trigger thumb basically means that her thumb is stuck in the bent position because of a swollen tendon that can not glide like it is supposed to.) The doctor recommended surgery to correct the problem. I put it off and put it off since I am scared to death of Hailey having anesthesia. Well- I’m glad I did. Because not too long ago I noticed her left thumb was the same way. So we went back to the doctor and he confirmed it- she has trigger thumb in that hand too. Apparently about 30% of the time if you have it in one hand you have it in both. So, now she has to have surgery on both hands. But I am glad I waited because now we can get it done all at once.
Hailey also went to see an allergy/asthma specialist. Even though she is completely healthy right now she still coughs every time she plays hard, laughs hard, has a tantrum or is out in the cold for an extended time. She now has an official diagnosis of asthma. And we are trying a new medication to see if it will control the asthma better. She is also having some blood work done to look and see if she has any allergies. The doctor does not think she displays symptoms of allergies but he just wants to rule it out. He said if she does not have allergies and this is just plain asthma that she will probably outgrow it. But, if it’s allergies it will be something she will always have to deal with. So, we are praying for no allergies.
That is about all we have been up to over the last week. I’ll keep you posted about when she is going to have surgery and let you know what happens at her next appointment with the allergy/asthma specialist.
Have a fantastic weekend!
