Friday we took Macy to her pediatrician for her second newborn appointment - though Danny and I were poked and prodded more than she was.
To my surprise the appointment began with Danny and I having to get flu shots and a whooping cough vaccines per the doc's recommendation. I was fine with the flu shot, but whooping cough? I was under the impression that was a disease more prevalent in the Middle Ages or The Renaissance Times?? I still don't know...because when I presented that argument to the doc he just laughed like I was kidding. (I wasn't kidding.)
Anyway, I ended up getting the shots which Danny captured for your viewing pleasure.
Alas, it was Macy's turn to get examined, who underwent something called "Newborn Screening." (Creative Title.) They took a blood sample from her heel to test from a variety of disorders, one of which I think was named solely for the purpose of giving me material for this blog.
|I know I say WTF all the time....but seriously, WHAT IN THE F-CK!?|
Thankfully Macy doesn't have Maple Syrup Urine disease, but you know who does?
