Well, I finally caved and took the whole clan to the Dr. yesterday. As I said in the last post, I have been sick lately. But, actually we have all been sick off and on for weeks now. Like, probably about a month at least.(pardon my valley girl talk) I try to stay away from meds and antibiotics if at all possible, but this was just too much. The Dr. laughed when he saw that it was for all of us, and treated my children with such kindness I wanted to hug him. (I once had a Dr. who actually asked if I couldn't have left my children at home with a grandparent or something! How rude!)
Well, after checking us all out, he prescribed antibiotics to one of my kidlets and told the rest of us we needed lots of rest or it would only get worse, and to be prepared for it to take a while. I should have asked him to write a prescription for a housekeeper while he was at it! He even offered to get us some sample cough syrup, and came back with about 9 bottles of it.
But, he really made a good impression when he offered all my kids not just one sticker, but two! Way to go Doc!
