Dr. did routine blood work Wed. at B's 9 month checkup. I missed her call on Friday evening, so I called this morning. Her nurse called back, but couldn't tell me anything because the doctor wanted to talk to me about the results herself. The doctor won't be back until next Monday. So, basically what I get from this is there was something abnormal, but I have no clue what and get to think about it for a week. Yipee.
I know she was checking for anemia, but not really sure what else. I had Parvo (fifth disease) while pregnant, so he had a full CBC at birth that was fine, but I thought checking for anemia again now wasn't a bad idea because of that, so I didn't ask a lot of questions about it at the appointment. Now I wish I had.
Anyone know what they usually check for at 9 mos? Beckett is a giant baby who is into everything, so I don't really think whatever it is would be too serious. After dealing with the Parvo (the worst of it being Thanksgiving last year), though, I tend to be a little paranoid with him. He's my second, but my first is 6.5 years old now, so it's almost like being a first time mom again.
Thanks! Oh, and hubs is off this week, so I might not check back as often, but I appreciate any help and will comment when I can. :-)
