Updates from the medical front

On Thursday of this week, Matthew had his regular check up with pediatric pulmonary. They seem slightly more convinced that Matt's asthma is allergy driven. Three points from the visit: allergy testing is not a worthwhile investment of time or money as they would still be fairly unreliable and how we treat it wouldn't change; we need to up the meds in allergy season and can decrease a bit at other times of the year; and it is likely he will outgrow the asthma.

He weighed in at 28.3 lbs and 36.5 inches tall. This is a weight gain of 1.3 lbs and a half an inch of growth since his 3 year old well visit in February. (At that time Katharine weighed in at 37.6 lbs and 43.25 inches).
