The One Where I Come Undone

Today's doctor appointment left us with more appointments (ent and orthopedist) a stool sample, chest xray, and many vials of blood plus a tb test. He confirmed the chicken pox diagnosis and announced a bonus ear infection. Then, after changing her antibiotic (to something called cedifnir?) I arrived at the pharmacy to find that the insurance couldn't locate her in their files. And, The Captain is just not feeling well, despite his antibiotic. He actually took his own temp today if that is any indication of how he's feeling. Almost everyone is asleep now, and I am in desperate need of a trip to the grocery. We are out of such novelty items as milk, bread, eggs and juice. Then, I am coming home to crash. I need all my strength to return to the doctor's office tomorrow to do the blood draw that they couldn't do (after two BIG sticks!) today.

I think I feel a pity party coming on. The invitations will be in the mail.

Whaaa! You need a whine and wine party:) I've been loving having my groceries delivered by it out.

Jane, I wish I lived closer. Then at least I could bring groceries and some meals for your family.

Does your church have an Elizabeth Ministry? Ours brings meals to new moms for the first several weeks after the babies/children arrive home.

I'm praying for you and for all who are still under the weather.

I just wanted to add, whine away. We've prayed you through the adoption and we'll pray you through the adjustment.
How is everyone feeling?
I can run you out some dinner this weekend, send me an email :)

Oh, that IS a rough day. I can see why you needed the laugh about the TP at the Cub Scout meeting. HUG!!!

I think one of my kids has had Cefzil in the past.

Hope everyone is feeling better!
