We started off as usual with a chest xray, which she is never a fan of. But she gets through it pretty quickly, and then we're moving on down the hall from outpatient radiology to the surgery clinic. Dr. S.P. was so surprised at how much she's grown, and said she looks great. Her xray was unchanged from her last one, and everything has been going well, so we don't have to go back for another xray and follow-up for 1 year. Yay!
Dr. S.P. also looked at her pectus, which is getting progressively worse and will continue to do so. He said hers is more prominent than most at her age, so it looks like she is definitely heading for a pectus repair when she's around 12 years old. We have discussed that at previous appointments, so no surprise there.
It was a pretty quick trip to Children's Mercy. We hardly waited any time at all in radiology or the surgery clinic, so we grabbed some biscuits and gravy at the cafe in between our two stops, and went by the train to check it out, but it was still out of commission. (We knew you'd be wondering, Theo!)
