Appointments galore

We had a busy week! E. and S. both had dental appointments, vision appointments and hearing evaluations this week. The dentist went well, E. didn't go for the x-ray too much, so they will wait on that for next time. S. has a deep molar than is going to require another fluoride treatment in two weeks. The vision appointment was just for E. and he has astigmatism. astigmatism is usually caused by an irregular-shaped cornea and is easily corrected by eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery.
The plan is, since he was not really cooperative, we will be going back in six months to do another eye exam. Same song with the hearing eval. He was pretty good there, but does not like getting things poked in his ears. His tests showed one ear has some hearing loss. They are not sure how accurate the reading was so he will be coming back in six months. Hopefully by then he will be a bit more mature and not so wiggly! S. has excellent hearing which is good news since he has a higher risk of having problems.
