Dr. Appointments

Beware! Tis the season for many dr. visits. I had Caleb in on the 19th for his well check. We did his four immunizations & a flu shot. We also got Dexamethazone for his croup cough. Nash also got some Dexamethazone for his croup cough. Mind you this is Caleb's second dose in like a week and a half! My reason for taking Nash was that on Sunday we discovered he had a TERRIBLE smell coming from his EAR. Come to find out that he has an ear infection and it is draining and that's what we could smell. Nasty! We're talking dead pit at the farm kind of smell - knock your socks off from several feet away! Poor kid! We got him some ear drops and he is doing much better (and he smells better too!). I also took Samantha. Just before we got her first set of tubes she was continually asking me to repeat myself, even if I was looking right at her and speaking loudly. She was also speaking quite loudly. Come to find out she does still have her tubes in (3 years in March for this set!!) but they are both really clogged with ear wax. SO, we got ear drops for her too!! I just keep telling myself at least we got it all in one trip this time! My girlfriend that keeps the boys has a son that is 2 1/2 years old. He started with croup after Caleb did. She had him into the dr. Sat. and then again on Monday. The dr. on Monday did an xray to rule out pnemonia (sp??) and told her he just had croup. She took him back in today & the poor boy actually does have pnemonia! Good thing mom is close by to keep boys! Unfortunately, she now has the same cold as Nash and Samantha!! Good thing I still have 5 sick days left I can use!!
Hope you have a great (and germ free) week!!

How sad! I hope it gets better very soon. It's so hard to be a teacher with sick kids. Good luck. Did you get my blog invite?
