This is what we do for fun around the house when we’re sick! Isn’t Justin a cute elephant?
Ok, so are y’all tired of hearing about my sick kids yet? I am. I’m scheming up some really fun posts with house renovation pictures so stay tuned… it’s destined to get better than this!! As I mentioned yesterday, Morgan was getting better, Paiger worse. Yesterday afternoon I took Paiger in to see our wonderful pediatrician. To me there’s nothing better than a young female pediatrician who has 3 kids who can sympathize with all our weaknesses as mothers & our crummy illnesses. Paige’s breathing was squeeky and labored and she was diagnosed with croup on top of flu! We had a dose of steroids there in the office and I’ve never seen a medication work on a child’s breathing better than that! There are times when I take things so simple as medication for granted. Thank you, Lord, for all your provisions!!
On a side note, I believe that all pediatricians’ offices should be well equipped with the following: 4 waiting rooms with doors that close for those patients who are: newborns, well, sick, and those who are throwing up sick… the pukers definitely need their own room with a toilet and door that closes. Our office has a room for newborns, a section for well, and a section for sick… but the throw-up patients get mixed in there with the sick patients and let me tell you, it’s not a pretty sight. What 3 year old can tell their parents they’re about to ralph, much less hit a target… just let them camp out in the bathroom until they are called… for the sake of those waiting who can’t handle sights like that! Can you imagine what I saw yesterday while waiting?!
