Can you guess where I went today?

Three hints: Junior, ears, prescription

Yes folks, for the third time in 4 weeks, Junior has gotten another ear infection. He was on antibiotics still when this one started. I don't get it. I did see the doctor that I really like and he agreed to let me try a low dose of antibiotics daily over the next three weeks. It's not usually done anymore, but it worked on Abs and this will hopefully buy us some time to get his allergies under control and the weather to remain warm and then we can be ear infection free. We have to go back in three weeks to reevaluate. Keep your fingers crossed that we see some progress!

This was the 5th time we have been to the doctor this week. I loathe going to the doctor. I'm already germaphobic and thankfully the clinic has hand sanitizer thingies everywhere. He wanted to play with one of the communal toys, which made my skin crawl. I did contemplate whipping out my mini bottle of lysol and spraying it down and then letting him, but I left my purse in the car. Maybe next time....

While we were in the office with the doctor my phone rings. I ignored it. They called back. It was Gunner. I answered.

Me: I have to call you back I am with the doctor.
Gunner: The doctor? Again?
Me: Yes, again.
Gunner: Fifth time is the charm right?

Yay Gunner for the positive thinking!

Hopefully this will be the last time.

I would write more, but I'm having a hard time typing through the laughter over the mini bottle of Lysol in your purse :)

Thought of you today...I saw a lady at the zoo today whip out a bottle of some spray/foam cleaning stuff and wipe off the lunch table.

if it makes you feel better, i carry a small bottle of clorox anywhere in my purse. i get looks when i take it out but hey i cant go thru another six weeks of straight illness or a wicked case of hand foot and mouth. so you know what spray on sister spray on!

hope junior is back to full strenght soon. dash-1 is dealing with wicked allergies right now and its just miserable.
