Sick little girl:0(

So, Vaeh is really taking to this 'normal' thing. She & Gabby both had snotty noses last week, & both developed the cough that goes along with post nasal drip. But last night, Vaeh decided to spike a temp... 102.4. So of course we broke out the motrin, which took care of the fever. This morning, she didn't have a fever, but was grabbing at her right ear.

Off to the pediatrician we went. Gabby stayed home from school, so she tagged along. Vaeh did have a low grade temp when we got there, but not too bad. During the exam Dr. McNeal found fluid in both ears, plus the ever lovely sounding lungs!! Poor kiddo:0(

So, yet another round of antibiotics. They put her on omnicef, which you'd think that all pharmacies would have, right? Nope! We use the WalMart here in town, much to my dismay. When I dropped off hr scripts, they said it would be 30 minutes. So, after an hour, they still didn't have it ready! Finally someone told me that they didn't have any in stock... WHAT?!?! You mean to tell me you let me stand around here (after wasting time walking around the store) for 15 minutes & didn't have the courtesy to tell me this?! So I told them that I'd be back later (this so that I wouldn't blow my cork & just rip them a new one!!). So my Mom called before she went out to pick it up & they have the generic, but insurance won't cover generic...UGH!!!

Do you ever feel like you're being given the run around & buried at the same time?! I think I need to soak in the tub... Calgon, take me away!!

Hope everyone else is staying healthy. And if you all would, keep Elaina in your prayers. She was having surgery today, I believe they're doing her Nissen.

There's a Walgreens by our house that has a drive-through pharmacy and Dan and I are always sucked in by the convenience of its drive through. Except, we are reminded EVERY TIME we go there why we said the last time, I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE. It seems like some pharmacies (or any business, for that matter) are just poorly run. Sorry to hear that you have pharmacy woes as well!

I hope the little princess V gets better very soon. Poor little thing...ears, nose, lungs.. HUGS to you all!!! xoxoxoox

I hope Vaeh is feeling better. I don't know what it is, but it seems like a lot of our heart friends are sick this time of year! I am outraged over the whole medicine issue! How could they let you just wait around for almost an hour before saying anything!?!? Good for you, Tina, for keeping your cool. :0) Take care and have a great weekend!
