Tuesday was our first trip to her new pediatrician. I was able to attend over a LONG lunch break. Following suit of the host of doctors and specialist that Zoey has already seen, Dr. Ramesh is amazing. Little one was, at that point in time 4.8oz OVER her birth weight! I have to admit, tears came to my eyes when I saw this. I am so proud of my little girl. Dr. Ramesh decided that since Zoey has a TON of appointments lined up over the next few months that it would not be needed for him to see her as frequent as one might think. In fact, the next time we go in is for Zoey’s 2month check up and shots! I agree with him in that if SOMETHING were to be going wrong, we will be seeing people frequently enough that it WILL be caught… but if needed he is only a call or email away.
I mentioned that this appointment was over lunch as it was finally my first day back at work. This day was rough for me. Not because of the questions, or the hugs (I am a hugger, so this is always a plus), it was rough purely because of the haze that I found myself in. hedging on the border of sleeplessness, and longing to be home to help my wife and to be with my daughter (both of whom I was around for almost 2 weeks straight) really messed with me more than I thought it would. But, I made it through the day in one peace. I did not go to Toastmasters, though I am sorry that I missed it.
I AM A DAD, I am scared out of my mind, and going to work is hard when there is a darling daughter and a beautiful wife waiting at home.
