Doc Visit

Well, first of all, let me just say it was a pain in the butt to find a doc out here! I had Curt print off a list of doc that accept our insurance before moving out here. Then when our phone got hooked up, I called to see if I could get him in. It was a DO doc, so I was very happy! (That's what our previous doc was in Des Moines) So I called and they said we don't take newborn, take him here (they gave me a name). Then they hung up on me. I called EVERY family doc on that list to try to get Thaddeus in. But NO ONE (Family Doctors) take newborns out here! They REFUSED!!!!!!!!! I wanted a fam doc so I didn't have to try and find another one for Curt and I, and depending on how old they see kids, I may need one for Kotah then... I was PISSED!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!! I am thinking, how can you be a family doctor and REFUSE to see newborns... They told me I HAD to take him to a Pediatrician. I am not against taking my kids to a Ped, but I would rather just have a fam doc. It's just the way I am, i dunno, call me weird. ;o)

So, I found one FINALLY, it's 20 min away. Got there, thanks to Curt's GPS! :o) BUT his GPS had me pulling into a SHOPPING PLAZA, that was the wrong address! I was looking for the address, but also listening to the GPS, the GPS WAS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I turned around and finally found it! The rooms were small and crying babies EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!! I got there at 9:20, appointment at 9:30, and left by 10:10. So I wasn't in there very long, but didn't feel rushed either, which is GOOD! She asked if I had any questions, but also said that I am pro b/c I already have 3 others. But she made me feel comfy, so that's good. ;o)

Thaddeus is 9 lbs, 3 oz, 21 3/4 inches long. He was 6 lbs 7 oz when we left a month ago! He gained almost 3 lbs in a month, should I be worried? ;o) He had to get a Hep B shot. Goes back July for 4 more shots, but it will only be 2 pokes.
