Where have I been? In the past 16 days, I've been to the Doctor's office with my girls 4 times, for lung checks and for their cough/cold/fever. I've been to Children's Hospital Urgent Care 2 times. To top off all the fun my husband was in a remote part of Canada for 10 of those days, where I had one heck of a time reaching him to make him share in my misery.
Yes, let's just say pretty much solo with two sick kids, luckily there wasn't much overlapping except for one night of surprise vomiting. Oh the joys of motherhood!
So here's a list of the things that have been going on in my world. I have to get them out and by golly, it's turning into a blog post.
Enjoy, boy I sure have.
Twice a day
Every 4-6 hours, can do one treatment earlier if needed
Every 6 hours
If fever breaks through, use Tylenol but repeat motrin at 6 hours.
Gallons of Juice, drink, drink, drink
Ears are clear
diminished on this side no wheezing
Oh yeah, lots of mucous
I don't know maybe a few barking sounds
Spike a fever post nap
Surprise a 10pm vomit episode in case you weren't having enough fun
Temperature has broken
No school, shit I forgot to call school.
Pharmacy doesn't have medicine
Pharmacy #1 has to call pharmacy #2 to get the prescription to fill
Drive thru pharmacy
wait in line at grocery store pharmacy
You're back again.
Do you need a job?
Maybe 6-8 calls to Dr's nurse
I feel so sorry for you
Fish at the Drs office
6 hours of sleep, no cough
Lots of scribbled on paper trying to keep an underslept family properly medicated and well recorded.
Please let this be it. I promise you universe I will be a good girl and become a hermit with my children.
ps, I almost failed to mention my furnace also went out on me during this time period when my husband was out of town. It took not one, but two trips from the repairman. Fan-fricking-tastic is my life!!!
