I swear, this kid has gone thru more in his five years than I have in my entire life!
Let's list everything:
2 years old (1/2006): Allergic reaction to cashews on an airplane. Had I not given him Benadryl before the flight (for congestion), he probably wouldn't be here.
2 ½ years old (11/2006): Surgery on his right thumb. His thumb wouldn't straighten out, so he had to have surgery and have some tendons removed so it would straighten and grow correctly.
3 years old (12/2007): Shingles. What three-year old gets shingles? They were BAD too! I'll spare everyone the pics!
5 years old (4/2009): I managed to run over his hand with a shopping basket and rip his finger nail off. His finger nail grew back just fine, but he has some scarring on the top of his hand.
5 years old (9/2009): Swine Flu! Yep. He tested positive on 9/21. Of course he got it! Poor kid gets everything! He luckily had a very mild case of it. Mostly just fever for two days.
Wow, he managed to go thru all of 2008 without anything major! I don't even think he was very sick that year!
He's a tough little kid!
