Dr. Mum

In amongst the ventolin, seretide, anti histamine eye drops, prednisone, penicillin, paracetomol and ibuprofen, I have become Dr. Mum!! With Billy-Joe's asthma, Sammy's allergic conjunctivitis, and Mickey's tonsillitis, I have a veritable pharmacy on hand.

I took Mickey to the hospital yesterday afternoon, as I was becoming concerned for his lack of improvement. He was as hot as Hades again, and extremely lethargic. Three and a half hours later, I was home with a different antibiotic to try on him. He is a little improved today, although Dr. Mum has inspected his tonsils and there's no change at this point in time. The school fete is tomorrow night, so the little man is getting a little anxious about missing his long awaited ride in the cup and saucer. I don't know what to do about work tomorrow either. Don't know whether to just ring now and get it organized, or wait until later........

Peter has a routine colonoscopy this afternoon - so I will drive him to that, go to Hardly Normal and get some photos done, and just try and kill time with an unwell little boy in tow. If it were closer to home, I could come home in the intervening time, but it's probably not worth it.

On a lighter note, Prison Break wasn't on last night...............I hate that when you are watching a show week after week, and then just to drag it out they cut it for a week or more.........grrrrr........

My parents arrive home today from Phuket!! Woohooo!!

Isn't it cool how we can become amazingly good at multi-tasking eh? I hope your wee man is getting better.
