Micah’s Check up

So, we went to Micah’s 3 year check up earlier this month.  It went well, with the small exception of Micah not wanting to stand on the scale to get weighed (I can laugh about it now….but it was not pleasant at the time!!).  He didn’t even flinch when they pricked is finger for the iron/cholesterol check, but didn’t want to keep that pesky bandaid on for long.  Here are the gory details:

Weight: 33 lbs 2.5 ounces

Height: 37 1/4 inches

Total Cholesterol: 222 (138 last year); 85 HDL (40 last year)

Our pediatrician is concerned about Micah’s cholesterol…we’re not.  We were actually pretty pumped to see how awesomely high his HDL is now.  It’s certainly interesting to try to have a conversation with someone in the healthcare profession about differing views on what’s healthy, but we believe that high HDL cholesterol is great for his developing brain and his heart, so we’re not worried about it and are not planning to slow down on the egg yolks or red meat. 😉

Afterwards, we got a salad as a little special treat for the “trauma” of the appointment…and, yes, it had eggs in it. =P
