We took Hayden to the allergy and asthma doctor today. I was shocked at the outcome of our visit. After hearing all about Hayden's history the doctor was very adamant about her diagnosis: Hayden has asthma.
She gave us a very clear treatment plan and sent us the the lab for blood work. They will test his blood to see if they can get any ideas of what allergies he has so we can keep him away from triggers that will cause asthma symptoms. So there is that. I'm still processing it all. We will go back to get the results from the blood test in a few weeks.
Hayden was not a fan of getting his blood drawn. He told Gary, "That man poked a hole in me and it hurt." Hayden was a champ though. He barely cried. I was so proud of him. He milked that 'holy' arm. He wouldn't move it for hours. He couldn't wait to get home to tell Layla all about it, but not before he talked us into a do-nut, Popsicle and lunch out.
Hayden told Layla, "Some man poked me in the arm and took my blood." This was before Layla really understood what was going and where we had been while she was at school. She eyed me with a shocked look. I was giggling inside. Kids are the reason rumors get started....haha!
Layla has 3 full days of school and 2 half days left as a first grader. I am a tad bit jealous of all the people already out of school, but we have Monday off. After Monday we are on the down-hill slide. Summer is upon us and I am so excited about some fun things in store for us this summer!
