Quick Check Up with A New Pediatrician

William’s left eyelid had looked a little pink recently. As a baby he has razor sharp nails that need cutting often. My guess was that he had scratched his eyelid a little too hard. Still when it was red for a few days we decided to check it out. As this was not an emergency, I had to use scheduling app for his pediatrician practice to make an appointment. The practice was very busy, so we couldn’t get one right away and it was with Dr. W whom he had never seen.

As this was not a developmental checkup, they weighed him with his clothes on. Here he seems to be giving the nurse the side eye for having him on the scale while clothed.

He was definitely active and in good spirits for this visit. Due to the time of the appointment, Matt alone went with him while I was at work.

Dr. W examined his eyes, ears, nose, and throat. She gave him a complete bill of health, in fact, she didn’t see any redness at all. It’s good to know that we can get appointments fairly quickly when needed to make sure he is the picture of health or to treat him if he does happen to be ill.
