Dr again

Being in Primary I get to see the attendance reports, which in that is included the kids that have not been to church at all in the month.  Guess who was on that list?  Samantha!  She apparently didn't attend at all in the month of Feburary.  She had a little cold, and then another time Amber was sick so Robert stayed home with Amber and we just let Samantha stay home too.  Then Lindsey had pink eye, so she stayed home and Amber was getting over her cold (or I thought) and both her and Samantha had yucky noses.  Then both the little girls were sick. 

I took Samantha and Amber in to the doctor once they too were showing signs of pink eye.  Poor Samantha!  She was looking worse than this picture.  She got yuckier before she got better.  They never really had red eyes, just goopy, slimy eyes.  Samantha also had a 103 temp.  She was burning up. 

Turns out that Amber had pink eye, an ear infection and then Samantha had pink eye, an ear infection, and possibly strep but they didn't swab her for it since the meds for her ear infections would cover strep too.  Amber didn't ever really seem sick, with the exception of coughing.  She did run a temperature one or two nights but was fine during the day, which was about almost 2 weeks before I took her in. 

We have been to the doctor lots lately.  He is our new doctor and we are getting to know him pretty quick.  Lindsey with her eyes, then Samantha and Amber, and then Emily had her 11 yr well-care visit since she is turning 11.  I feel like we should be allowed a punch card or something for the doctor and get our next co-pay free or some other reward.  At least we have insurance.  I am thankful for that!

I'll be at my dr.s office for the 3rd time in a short time when I take Jacob in a week or so but my story is not as dramatic as yours. plantar wart for mason, 7th grade shots for jacob and track physical for Rachel.

I don't miss those eye infections little kids get. yuck.
sorry for all the illness. It must make you a bit stir crazy. I think I saw Rob running on 400 North yesterday.... around noon. I figured he was running on his lunch hour? Is it possible that was really him that I saw??????
