Ok so they believe that Logan has a asymmetric rib cage. It’s not a huge health danger but down the road could cause issues if it continues to worsen. We were asked to take pictures of him from different angles to document what it looks like and use it as a reference to watch for changes. If we continue to notice changes we will need to go in for more scans as well. But at this point it doesn’t see to be affecting his heart, lungs, or spine. These will be things that we’ll just keep an eye on as he grows. They will do a throughall check of it again at his 18 month appointment in about 3 months.
So right now we have nothing to worry about but we need to be aware of it and how it changes as he goes through growth spurts.

Last night I noticed a bump on Logan's chest. It's right about where his heart is and where his left and right ribcage meet on the left hand side. It felt alot like his ribs sticking out in that area but I wasn't 100% sure. We put a call into the after hours nurse at his office and we conculded it was not life threating in anyway but it should get check out today. This morning I took him into the Docs and he thinks it is what is called asymmetric rib cage. He did send us on for chest x-rays to take a look at his lungs, heart, and ribcage. We should know more later.

Well Logan still has the ear infection and has to go on a new drug. However Allie's lungs are clear and the meds are still working in her system so she was all set. I hate when the kids are sick, especially around the same time and near the Holidays. It seems to be the trend over the last 5 1/2 years. Maddie was sick on so many holidays when she was little and her ear infections really knocked her down and out.

It's official the sickies can go away now!!! Allie was diagnosed with bronchitus on Dec 29th and Logan with a double ear infection. Well this morning Allie woke up with her left ear draining like crazy and Logan seems to not be better yet. He's stumbling all over the place. Major drainage of the nose and just still not right. So off we go back tomorrow to the docs. Oh the joys of winter!!! On a good note Maddie has been really healthy since she started school so maybe they are just getting it out of their systems.
