I am sick again. Thankfully I haven't left 1st Thing yet, and can get the nurse to call in another round of antibiotics. Yes, I am self diagnosing. I have been off of antibiotics for 2 1/2 weeks from last time. I woke up with roaring in both ears, lots of fluid there, highly susceptible to ear infections. I have the stuffed up head, and I just plain don't feel good.
G is getting it again too but I will have to wait until I get paid to take her in. Plus her doc is not in on Fridays and we are busy on Saturday. We have pictures tomorrow, priorities, priorities, you know. I may get my mom to take her Monday or Tuesday for me. As I can't really start taking off work as soon as I start, now can I? Besides my mom gets off work earlier than I do anyway.
If this doesn't work for me I will be going for another truck stop doc like last time for the cocktail shot. For G I am going to try otc because this may not be antibiotic need for her. I am more leery of giving it to her and her pediatrician is too. One time he told me I just needed to suck it up and deal with it as there was no infection or need for antibiotic. Although, I didn't really like his answer, I respected him for telling me that.
Some docs just give Rxs left and right because the parent/patient wants them regardless of need. Hers will at least be honest and give me other advice or tell it straight, "fever virus, motrin and tylenol, alternating don't come in." Personally, I like that about a doc. Don't waste my money if you don't have to but give me what is needed.
Okay so this is rambling now, which means my mind is not focusing due to congestion and ears roaring. G is spending the night with the grandparents, I will go to sleep early.
