The Planet

We went to Kaleb's dermatology appointment today. The office was at Phoenix Children's Hospital. I HATE driving on the I-10... so Matt drove us. He waited in the car with the little kids while I took Kaleb in.

Kaleb is the funniest kid to talk to. He has the biggest imagination and is so full of energy. When he talks, he lights up the room. He is very animated. I love when I get to take him somewhere... just the two of us. We talked while we waited for the doctor to come in. We played Simon Says. We played "twister" on the colorful square tiles on the floor of the exam room... (I had him jump to the color that I said.) He is so fun.

Now to the details of the appointment... the rash on his head is nothing of concern. They diagnosed it with a big long doctor word... but it is pretty much in the rash or eczema family. It should go away eventually. We are supposed to go back in six months if it is still there.

We also showed the doctor a lump Kaleb has had in his ear lobe since he was a baby. His pediatrician has been watching it... and it was never really a big concern. It is a calcium deposit. However, it has recently been getting bigger, and it is starting to hurt him. The dermatologist recommended getting it removed... which means surgery!! I am a little nervous... but it shouldn't be that bad. I will update with more details if we decide to move forward with that.

Another funny story about this little bump in his ear. If you know Kaleb at all, you know his passion for all things space. Planets, rocket ships, aliens... he loves it! Well... he came up with this story about the "planet" in his ear. I asked him how he thought it got in there and this is what he said:

"I was outside and I looked up in the sky. I saw a planet falling down. It was red... my favorite color. It flew in my mouth and went left. It landed in my ear and now it is there. Now it has aliens on it... and that's why it hurts now."

Haha!! You see what I mean about his imagination?!

And what would a post be without a picture? Here is that little love of my life himself!
