Today Matthew had his two year old check up and it was all good news! He weighed in at 25 pounds, 2 ounces and 34 inches tall. They said based on his weight and height percentiles at this visit (50th for both), they would guess he would be 5'10" at full height. But, at almost all of his previous visits he has been more like the 75th or 80th percentile, which would put him somewhere closer to 6'1".
She said his lungs sounded great and she was very pleased to hear that. It is still hard to know how this whole asthma business will turn out for Matthew. Apparently, research shows that it breaks out into thirds: a third get over their asthma issues around age 3, another third around age 9 or 10, and another third never do. I am hopeful that Matthew will fall into the first category since he has been reacting so well to his medications.
No immunizations this visit but he did get a finger prick. That was no fun and I'm sure they would have rewarded him with a lollipop if he hadn't already helped himself to two!!
