Maddie Stays Home

Last night Madaghan was attacked by the Croup like the Empire attacked Hoth. Non stop and ruthless.  All the usual tricks were Bantha Fodder: steam shower, cold air, mist..nothing worked. Laurie had to stay up all night with her.

So, today I took the day off work and took the cherub to the doctor. 

Notice how Madaghan was dress for the empty waiting room. I was gladshe did not sit down in one of those chairs, I would not be able to find her.

After waiting 10 seconds, (nice!) we were led to the exam room.



Even though we were not waiting all that long, Maddie decided she had enough and laid down for a few seconds. I was fortunate enough to snap this picture of her still. Yes, actually still. See? Proof:


Finally, the doctor came in.

You were not waiting long at all.!


Ok, I used the word “finally” as if to emphasize we were waiting long. Truth be told, it was the shortest wait  in a doctor’s office to date.

Checking for boogers.

The doctor did the examination. Said things like ” make sure not strep, almost bronchitis” blah blah blah. Took a throat culture which Madaghan did NOT approve:


He sent a presecription to the pharmacy and when we went to go pick it up, it was not ready, so we did some shopping:


Madaghan bought a flower to let everyone know she is a girl:

A trip to McDonald’s for breakfast and everyone is all smiles!

I love my hash browns!

    ………..and here is the psycho (EDP / for those on the job) father with his friggin camera all up in the doctor’s business and instead of consoling his daughter while she is crying is snapping pictures for his blog.

      Nahh..he had no idea I was snapping pictures. Plus Maddie is a ham for the camera and loves seeing herself on the blog. I use it like :” If you are good for the doctor, I will show you on the blog later.” So works.

    Sorry the usual Bantha Fodder for croup failed you.

    On a Star Wars note, in the pic where her doctor is “checking for boogers”, if she were green, she’d look a little like a (cute) Gamorrean Guard (but only because he’s pushing up her nose).

    I don’t think I’ve EVER seen a doctor’s waiting room empty. That’s crazy. And I thought my short wait of 10 min. was a record.

    So what meds did the dr. perscribe? T had the croup last week and the doctors were like if he’s playful and his breathing is not laborious, then let it run its course. we did the steam, cold air, mist, all weren’t helpful. it has run it’s course and now it is a cold. His breathing sounded laborious to me, but they heard him inhale/exhale and cough and they said it was standard croup.

      The doctor put her on antibiotics. They seem to be working. I hate it when all the home remedy tricks don’t work! No matter what you do, your child is just wheezing. GRRR. Standard croup is like taking a dump on a pile of diarrhea.

    Throat cultures hurt! And I love her leopard print suit. Rawr. Hope she feels better soon.

      What kind of English is that? How about you go fuck your own fist?

      I wish to make statistics of independent opinions!

      Oh please shut up. How does one make statistics of independent opinions? If they were all independent than each opinion by itself is a statisitic you dummy.
      Curl your hand into a fist and jam it into your asshole.
