Finally feeling a little better. I had to go to the hospital yesterday to get my penicillin though. Apparently my Dr's office now has a policy in place where they won't prescribe antibiotics over the phone. Fortunately the Somerville hospital has something called 'express care' for cases like mine. They take cases that aren't an emergency, but were you'd go see your doctor if it were a weekday. But it only took about an hour and fifteen minutes for the whole thing. That's about the average trip to my doctor.
Rich took Emily to Target yesterday afternoon while I snoozed. Poor Emily got Eric's plague within 12 hours of coming to take care of him and missed all of last week at work. I felt so bad. So, the target trip was the first in the series of stuff we want to do to make it up to her. She walked down here in three feet of snow to watch Eric in a very smelly house, and then she got sick herself.
Eric's had a cranky couple of days. His top molars are coming in piecemeal. He's got two tooth bumps on either side of a strip of gum. It's been like that for months. His vocabulary is expanding, but I still expect him to be a late talker. He uses words sparingly, but he understands everything. He pushes his truck across the floor and I say 'Let Go!' and he does and the truck continues on its on for a few feet.
Hopefully the pox has left my house and we'll all be healthy going forward. Rich has an interview on Monday. Maybe something will come of that.
Keep your finger crossed for us.
