Today Julius and Pauly had their kindergarten physicals. It's been a year since they saw the Dr. And since our Dr of over 20 years quit, it took us a while to get them in.
Julius has Hyper-thyroid. :o(
Pauly has Hypo-thyroid. :o(
Last year Julius had slightly low Thyroid and then normal Thyroid. Pauly's was fine last year. No one saw a need to re-check sooner.
I had a feeling Julius had thyroid issues because he just does not gain weight and had brittle nails, and thin dry skin. Nope, Hyper thyroid. I hadn't even read up on Hyper, but now I see it is exactly him. :o( Nervousness and energy. Poor baby. We thought it was his personality. Our little leprechaun.
Julius will see a pediatric endocrinologist miles away from here.
It's very frustrating that in our big central MN city there is not even one (ooooh this makes me mad) pediatric endocrinologist visiting our area for all the children we have here. :o((((
Please pray for Julius.
Pauly seemed like he would have no thyroid issues if you had asked me! Good thing I'm not a Dr.!! (Moses also has Hypo thyroid and is tiny and thin, and has thin brittle hair.) Pauly has great hair, brittle nails, and he gains weight too easily. I didn't really see any of those as Thyroid. :o( We checked him because we were checking Julius. Thank Goodness. Pauly will start meds.
When Mosie started his Thyroid meds we called them his "happy pills" because he was even more happy after taking them! I wonder if my little Eyore/Pauly will cheer up now?? Either way, he is precious!
