Sickies

So as much as I was dreading the first day back from Spring Break, I spoke too soon. Avery started running a fever (101.8) last night and was no better this morning. I couldn't even get out of bed this morning, so we took the opportunity to play hooky and be miserable together.

There was lots of sleeping, wiping up snot, sleeping, cleaning out gunky eyes, and more sleeping.

Of course we couldn't get into our pediatrician (we never can unless we plan way in advance), so we saw the other pedi in the practice, who it turns out, I liked a lot better than ours. Is it bad to switch pedis in the same practice? (I think I'm on a doctor-switch thing right now though because I just switched eye doctors and am seriously considering changing my girly doc...)

The verdict: Avery has a double ear infection along with all sorts of upper respiratory garbage, thus requiring her first antibiotic prescription.

Even though it's on my way home, I hate Walgreens very very much, so I had them go ahead and send the prescription to Walmart. When I tried to pick it up, they assured me it would be ready in 15 minutes. Cool. Except that 15 minutes was actually one hour. Not cool. But I did get to see my friend Jenny, who I hadn't seen in AGES, so we had some time to catch up. Cool. By the time they had finally finished Avery's prescription, I was achy, chilled, and hardly able to stand, and Avery woke up from her slumber. Not cool. Thanks, Walmart.

Matt did cook for us tonight though, and Avery even got in some practice time on the piano. Ha!

We're doing the half-day switch tomorrow, and Avery's allowed to go back to school on Wednesday. This week isn't turning out so bad after all...

Sorry to hear that. =( Something is making its way all around to everyone!! We were down and out for the month of February, taking turns each week. It was no fun, especially for me who had perfect attendance at school since the beginning of time. I don't think I have been that sick since a decade ago or so. Hope the little one will feel better soon. Sorry you had to wait so long too. =( Not cool at all.
