Step Away from WebMD

Lesson I learned today: Do not do online research trying to figure out what is wrong with Penny. Especially after my mom passed on from my dad that he thinks she has a swallowing problem. You will end up reading about Laryngomalacia. But that is only after you decided not to read about the other scary reasons a kid might have problems swallowing. We'll let the experts do the diagnosing.

I had to click that second link. Who knew both botulism and herpes caused swallowing problems?

I had to walk away from Dr Google during Alex's helmet days. I particularly had to walk away from Google images!

My son actually did/does have laryngomalacia! :-) I still remember when the doctor wrote out that LONG word. I hope you can figure out what's going on! I know it's frustrating!

Yikes!!! Yes, step away from the internets....

I stopped consulting the internet the minute I found out I was pregnant - it's terrifying! Now, if I ABSOLUTELY must check something, I make Alex do it and he tells me just the important information and not all of the insanely unlikely and scary stuff.

Sorry I deleted my earlier comment, because apparently I can neither spell or type. But I have to agree to step away from Dr Google - when I was pregnant with DS1 I found out he had a two vessel cord. I went immediately to Dr Google - cried for two days. Until I finally listened to the sage advice of my high risk ob, who was not concerned at all!
