Summary of the past two weeks:
CC-fever for 3 days, spiking in the middle of the night to 105'. Diagnosis- Hand, foot and mouth disease, a virus that makes little bumps all over her cute little butt. They are still there. Fever is gone, kind of. Regimen: Tylenol as needed for fever, Allegra 2x/day for allergies, albuterol as needed for cough.
Esther - awoke last week with our first family case of croup. Aha- allergy season is upon us. Fever besets her and has lasted on and off for 5 days now. Most likely because of pneumonia.
the regimen: Amoxicillin 2x/ day, Allegra 2x/ day (which the factory doesn't make any more? Really?), Albuterol as needed (6 times last night :)), Ventolin as needed, Tylenol as needed, Advil ditto, Singulair 1x/day. At 2am I administered Benadryl so she could sleep. It worked.
Robert- healthy as a horse.
Laurie- Thankfully, healthy. Regimen- coffee minimum 2x/day. Herbal supplement so I don't get sick, whenever I remember to take it. Prozac, daily. Wine- 2-150 glasses on the weekend as needed.
