APPOINTMENT WITH THE PEDIATRICIAN!


ON THE WAY TO THE PEDIATRICIAN!

The Luphers had a great outing! Many things were discussed with the pediatrician, Dr. Tapia. They talked about immediate concerns and possible future concerns like visits to the ER. The good thing about this pediatric group is that they are very hands on if Witt has to go to the hospital. The doctor said that if it was ever time for some very hard life decisions that they would be a part of that too. I really appreciate and thank the Lord that there are people in this world willing to take that on as part of their job. Ultimately any decisions will be made by Melanie and Austan under God's guidance but to know that Witt's pediatrician will also step in and offer advice is wonderful. Although Witt was originally supposed to be Dr. Lewis' patient, he may actually stay with Dr. Tapia. The group of doctors all work closely with each other and Melanie and Austan liked him. Dr. Tapia said that Mel and Austan can take Witt on outings! Of course, Witt still can't be around anyone who is sick and he will not have the measles or chicken pox vaccines for 6 months. Certainly taking Witt out involves packing up quite a few things but if anybody can handle it Melanie and Austan can!!!!!

Did you say outings? Next time we are Houston, maybe we can visit somewhere that doesn't involve a waiting room! Yee haw! I'm glad this doctor and group seem like a good fit. ~Mindy
