Current sick bay in our house includes a full size tent and
that creepy guy from Yo Gabba Gabba.
Upon visiting the Dr this morning, he determined that she has infections in both ears. I mentioned to him that I wasn't sure last night if I could have given her more Tylenol before the 4 hrs was up. He told me no, I should not do that, BUT, a good trick is to warm a little olive oil up and put a few drops in the ear and it stops the pain almost immediately. I love that guy! Olive oil. Doesn't this sound like a trick from the old country? I half expected him to tell me to rub her ear with a garlic clove too. Her Dr, is not at all like someone from "The Old Country" and in truth, is probably not much older than I am. But this is a hint I can use. My girl is an ear infection kid so I'm sure this will come up again.
I also noticed that the Dr's office was offering H1N1 vaccines to parents or grandparents of their patients. I did not get one but I did note that this was in stark contrast to the hysterical flu clinics that were happening around town where people were on the news paralyzed with fear that they might not be able to get one. This is not really germain to the story but I thought it was an interesting aside.
On to Wegmans where I went to fill the prescription. What a nice surprise when it rung up FREE. Yes, free. Like don't even need to see my insurance card, no co-pay, just give me the medication and the little plastic spoon and send me on my way free. They did this for a month last year but apparently now they offer it all the time. I think this is such a generous thing.What business gives products away? Just another reason why Wegmans rocks.
I felt like everyone was helping to make my girl feel better today.
Tonight she's much better & I think the tent did as much to make her feel better as the antibiotics!
