Maddie Stays HomePosted: March 11, 2010
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.
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.
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!
