Ellie is now pretty healthy, but recently some people have asked me about her various doctors. She has a lot. So here's a glimpse of a "now healthy child with Down syndrome with a lengthy medical history" doctor schedule.
Pediatrician - When sick, well check annually, flu shot.
Geneticist - Annually
Cardiologist - Annually
GI Doctor - Annually
ENT - New, annual I guess?
Dentist - Twice a year
Ophthalmologist - Annually
General Surgery - Dismissed around a year old.
Sleep specialist - TBA
Plus, weekly physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy at school.
It only seems overwhelming a couple times a year when we have a bunch of appointments at once and Ellie misses school, etc. She's really tough and hasn't complained!
