Still Home

Husband and I quibbled yesterday over whether it was necessary to fill the prescription for an antibiotic for the Dukes. He thought we should put her on it and I thought she had a virus and she seemed to be much better. Guess who was right?

Not me.

So another day at home, which is not so bad considering the snow storm today, but I will have to venture out with her in the car to the pharmacy to fill the prescription. Went back and forth about it forever because she didn't have a fever last night. She did have one this morning but it comes right down with ibuprofun. I googled it to see if it would be ethically reasonable to take her to school and came up in a gray area. But ultimately decided I wouldn't feel comfortable as a parent knowing I had sent her to school when she should be on an antibiotic. (sigh)

3 Things:
- Children's Motrin and Tylenol. They always help a little, and sometimes a lot.
- Belly Dance class. It's a great workout!
- People taking it easy on snow covered roads. Its scary when you can't see the lane markings on the highway.

I'm thinking if the doc says take anti-biotics, I would take them. Just make sure she takes the ENTIRE prescription. No savezies.

And it's ok to be wrong once in a while! Would you really want to be married to someone who was ALWAYS wrong?

I was in a similar situation with Jonas. The doc gave me a prescription, but said it was up to me whether to start it. I held off for a couple days, but he wasn't getting better. He's been on it only a few days and the cough and congestion are gone. I think maybe there was some low level infection. Lisa

I agree with Lakeview. You don't want her sick when you're traveling for sure.

And what are the chances of of my ever agreeing with Lakeview!
