It's all Perspective

Timothy has been sick for 10 days with aches, yucky nose, and a mild cough.

Samantha has been sick for a couple of days with a fever and yucky nose. Then last night she started coughing. Ding ding ding-magic sound! I called her nurse this morning.

Yes, I let my son cough for 10 days, and I let Samantha cough for 1 night!

Balboa was full, so we were booked at a clinic that's actually closer to our house. The kids were seen by 2 different doctors, 20 minutes apart, and let me tell you that took some juggling! Anyway, final diagnosis...

Timothy-sinus infection
Samantha-double ear infection!!!

Neither of my kids get either of these. So random! And guess what they're both on...

Amoxicillin

Samantha's dosage is more than double Timothy's.

But all I could think on the way home is how NORMAL that antibiotic sounds. I can't even remember the last time Samantha was prescribed that!

I like normal.

Normal...ahhh, I love that word! LOL Glad you were able to get them both on something, and hopefully it will take care of it quickly!

I am glad you caught the ear infection so early. They are so miserable. Hope the kids feel well soon.

Yay normal is such a good word to hear. I hope they get better soon. They both are adorable! Have a good week:)

it must be nice to be on a normal antibiotic! Seriously, you can tell people they are on it and they don't look at you like you are crazy (omincef, Cipro, people never know those).

I hope that they get better soon. It can't be fun dealing with this by yourself.
