In our area the weather has been glorious and then cold. Sunny, then snowy. Lots of people are sick. Our Professor had a cough for about 2 weeks so we took him to the doctor. He (thankfully) just had a sinus infection. So we did 10 days of antibiotics. He finished them and over Thanksgiving his congestion and cough worsened. I took him back to the doctor yesterday and thankfully his lungs are clear but he needed a different antibiotic. While I am beyond thankful for our health care system I really don't like so much medicine for our kids. But I am thankful to live in a small town where a doctor's appointment lasts for 20 minutes. I am thankful that the medicine was available at the local pharmacy (which has a drive-thru). And I am thankful the Professor LOVES taking his medicine! I must admit though...hard to be thankful for these things when your Toddler pukes snot mixed with smoothie all over you...just saying.
Here's to everyone's health!
