You give me fever!
Miss woke up around midnight (why is always midnight or 3 in the morning that things go down?) Thursday night burning up with fever, temp running 102 plus. And because we cannot do just one thing at a time Lil Bro woke up and decided to have a temper tantrum to the tune of 'I won’t Mama now'!
We saw the pediatrician Friday who decided to see the boys also while we were there because she feels these coody filled kids are passing this stuff back and forth to each other. Sure enough tough guy Lil Bro had an ear infection. Hello could he have mentioned this to Mom? The pediatrician said, “Lil Bro which ear hurts?” And the little stinker pointed to the infected ear. Thank goodness she is cool and gets that he is just not a fussy sick kid and that it isn’t that I am a who cares kind of Mom.
Since this round of sickness started 6 weeks ago with Mr. and then proceeded on to Miss and then Lil Bro and second verse same as the first we have started it all over again she decided that it was time to bring on the big gun antibiotic and they are all going to be on it for a full 2 weeks. I gave her the face to which she explained that she knew I was not a med seeker but they needed it, for crying out loud Miss took a NAP and was NOT eating! Two things that never happen, even when she had her tonsils out at 3 she was downing Jello and Slurpies like there was no tomorrow and that was straight out of surgery!
I will say that even while sick she has been a pleasant little thing, really amazing stuff these ups and downs.
The trip to the pharmacy was a real trip. (I really think a camera crew should just follow me around, it's really pretty entertaining stuff.) The pharmacy staff knows our kids and our family well for obvious reasons. I am pretty sure we are paying at least the light bill down there and thank goodness for insurance.
The pediatrician did not question Miss reaction to the Singulair med btw, she admitted that it does happen with some individuals “especially those with Miss’ chemistry”. She is now using a nose spray to help with the on going nose problem. The pediatrician also tested her urine because of the fever and complaint about belly pain with no poop issues. It showed a small trace of white cells and this particular big gun antibiotic will wipe that out too, but this prompted pediatrician to have a discussion with Miss about proper wiping techniques. Miss was not having that conversation thank you and so she simply chooses not to participate. It is absolutely hilarious to watch my child work her magic on someone else. Where as she will feel free to give her family the Wham-O she’d prefer not to go there with others. She sat there stone faced starring at the doctor and I was pretty sure if the doctor kept talking that laser beams were going to shoot from Miss’ eyes!
Their pediatrician really is great. It is a situation where it is totally worth putting up with her no count office staff because she is so great. At any rate the Little Loo-Loos are on the road to recovery and we have pro-biotics on board to combat the effects from the antibiotics.
True we have a many a pair
of messy underwear
but that’s nothing new ‘round here
and we hope to soon be clear
of coodies and all that we fear
but until then, pass me a beer
