He should follow up with his pediatrician for well-child visits and vaccinations to promote his physical and mental health (Burns et al., 2017). Disease Prevention: BH has had his well-child check for this year and is up to date on his vaccinations for school. He will need to return next year and continue to get physicals for sports. There was nothing that BH could’ve done to prevent appendicitis, but he and his parents should continue maintaining healthy lifestyles. REFLECTION: This is experience with BH was interesting because I was aware of the signs and symptoms of appendicitis, but I didn’t realize that is what he had because the lower right quadrant pain was his only symptoms. He never had a fever or nausea. His white blood cell count was not available for me to review at the time, but Dr. Khalifa did say that it was elevated on a later date. It is essential to look at the whole picture when diagnosing a child with such a vague symptom. All children are different and react to diseases and pain differently. ________________________ Initial ________
