What Is Wrong With Him?

I have been noticing something different about Colton lately.

But I could never pin-point what it was.

Until he was standing above me one day as we played.

And I got a good look at his nose.

That just does not look right for a five year old!

So I made an appointment with our local ear, nose, and throat guy.

Sitting in his office today he asked me what the problem was.

I pointed to my own face to show him… "This thing, I dont know what its called, but it looks a little swollen.  And like it is going to block Coltons breathing soon."

"Has he had trouble breathing?  Been snoring?  Been complaining at all?"

"Well, no.  I just thought that thing (pointing again at my own face) looked funny."

The Dr. just nods and says, "Its totally normal.  He has a deviated septum.  Don't touch it.  Don't do anything about it.  Unless he has problems breathing, then come back."

"Oh!  Great.  I am glad its nothing to worry about. (pointing again at myself) What is that thing called anyway?"

And the doctor, not even cracking a smile says,

"Your nose."

*crickets*

Gee. Thanks Doc.

    Love it! I am in the same boat with my 5 year old…taking him in for something (that is probably nothing) that my son complains about *just* enough to make me think that there could be something wrong. I would be very happy to get confirmation that nothing is wrong:) We mothers are certainly observant:)

    Oh my goodness that is too funny! Dr. Sarcasm!!! I think the only thing that looks wrong with Colton is that he is just a little bit too cute!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL!!!!

  • Londa says:

    Oh, my husband would totally find a kindred spirit with your little guy–he loves to connect with other deviated septum peeps. A nose bond or something? Your little guy is too cute! No worries–my husband doesn’t snore or anything! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I too have a deviated septum – we are obviously part of a very exclusive club!!!
    I much prefer to breathe through my mouth (which means I wake with a dry mouth and always have a glass of water by my bed), but can use my nose if I have to – but I am a bit noisy!

    HAAAAAA HAA HAA HAA HAA HAA!!!!!
    Not about the deviated septum thing, but about the nose thing. That’s one funny dr! What’s funnier is he didn’t even know he was being funny!!
    Wow, you’ve been a busy blogger this week. I need to get caught up!
