Well...i meant to write about this awhile ago but it just popped into my head since Will is going for his nine month check up this week. Unfortunately he is not going to be able to see his normal doctor but he is going to see a doctor, that i think suspects i am a over bearing, over protective mommy.
Let's see it all started about 3 months ago when Will was running a fever and he was throwing up a bit. I took him to the pedi and he said that it was a viral infection and to just make sure that Will had plenty of fluids and that I kept an EYE on him. I emphasis EYE b/c whenever something small happens to Will, I suspect it is something more than it is. Any other mommy out there do that?
Will was on the mend and I was giving him a bath when I was shampooing his head, I felt a pretty big lump on the back of his neck and I just about freaked out! Cancer is in my family so I do not take any chances. I called my sister and she said call the pedi right away. So I did and the receptionist got us in that afternoon. Needless to say I am sure she has heard what I told her on the phone a million times.
We got to the pedi and he said these are not tumors...they are lymphnoids. Which are very common when anyone is getting over a virus. He said in fact he has some in his groin area as well. Heaven for bid if I would have found them there too! I would have rushed him to the emergency room.
Meanwhile Lew and the pedi were kind of laughing at me.
I said to them both...it is better to be over protective!
I just wish that Will was able to see his normal pedi all the time. Because he would not have laughed at me except for the fact that you cannot get into see him for 3 months!
Any mom ever experience what i did? would love to hear your thoughts.
