Better and worse

When Jessica gets sick, we hope she doesn’t need to be put on antibiotics because she’s allergic to so many. Namine has quite a few medical allergies, but not as many as Jessica. Yet.

Sickness

After such a busy day yesterday, we thought that today would be a little more relaxed. We were wrong. Namine woke up this morning with a barky cough. The pediatrician’s office is closed on Sundays, and the Children’s Hospital Urgent Care (both in New Berlin and located on the CHW campus) don’t open until 11:00 on Sunday mornings. Fortunately, Namine was not having difficulty breathing, so we were able to wait until Urgent Care opened. We were glad we didn’t have to take her into the ER.

A high-stress situation

I’m not a fan of surprising Namine with doctor visits. She knew that she had an appointment with her pediatrician this afternoon, but she didn’t know any details. She certainly didn’t know that she would be getting vaccinated, and I wasn’t about to tell her.
