18 month Check Up

Well, Benji went for his check up this past WEdnesday. Everything looks good. He's 26 pounds and 33 inches long. Maintaining in the 80-85 percentile. LOL We knew he wouldn't be as big as Micah, but he ain't grown yet.
We saw Dr. Seethaler and I still don't know what to think about him. I know his intentions are well. Just a touch on the concerned side as to whether he is looking out for the best interest of the patient or the insurance. Why do I say this?
Last week , Benji's PT sent a referral to the pediatrics office for his supports. (He needs them because his ankles are not developing correctly.) Dr. Seethaler said he filled it out and sent it in to the Orthotics place. But then he wanted to see Benji walk. Wouldn't you know it, that little boy walked nearly perfect. The pronation and flat foot was there but Benji was walking normal. Don't get me wrong, I would love it if my baby didn't need the orthotics, but to have the problem and all of a sudden it go away? I know miracles still happen, but this is one I didn't pray for. And since he has been dragging his toes and the ankles are pronating.
Anyhow, it should take 30-45 days to get the insurance and everything straightened out and him be fitted. Once he is fitted it takes a little bit to get the supports.
Other than that, things look good. And he loves the new house.
