I finally brought CE to the paediatrician's clinic yesterday for his long overdue Hepatitis A jab (2nd dose). It was supposed to be taken in December last year. But we kept delaying because we sort of forgot about it. :p And when we remembered, he was either not in tip-top condition or sick. Since his paed said it's okay and there's no rush, we didn't bother much. So we dilly-dallied till now.
Statistics @ 3 years, 2 months & 8 days old
Weight - 14.8 kg
Height - 103.5 cm
When he was at the clinic, he didn't want to go into the paed's office. I didn't tell him beforehand why we were there. I had to drag him out of the playhouse. But luckily he was okay when he's inside the room. He was looking at what the paed was doing and saw the needle being poked into his thigh. He said "Ei, pain!" And that's it. No crying, no fussing. I was so proud of him.
The paed then mentioned that he's in the 75-90 percentile group in the growth chart. He used to be in the above 90 group. As long as he's healthy, he said there's nothing to worry.
He also discussed about deworming the kids. He told me it's better for them to be dewormed every 6 months as XY attends a kindy. Funny he didn't mention this 2 years ago (when XY started kindy). I chose the Vermox chewable tablet, instead of liquid form. Well, tablets can be treated like sweets. And true enough, the kids enjoyed their fruity flavoured 'sweets' when I gave it to them after dinner. :-) Nothing unusual is supposed to happen after taking the tablet. Even if there are worms, it won't be visible in their stool. Hmmm... are you imagining worms dangling from the butt? kekekeke
